Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 8 of George Will’s 1992 book, Restoration:

America’s movement to revolution and independence began, particularly in Boston and Virginia, as a recoil against the overbearing executive power wielded by Royal Governors. The Continental Congress was America’s first weapon against that. But executive power is a perennial problem, and Congress must be counted on to be the primary check upon it.

DBx: Congress, sadly, is complicit in the cancerous growth of executive power, the increasing rule by executive order, and the vast expansion of the administrative state. America is moving closer and closer to having an elected monarchy.

And, of course, at the state level, Covid Derangement Syndrome has allowed U.S. governors to greatly bulk up their power to rule by arbitrary diktat.
