Pushing the Constitutional envelope destroyed the Roman Republic.

Have no doubt that Obama is doing something that sets a dangerous precedent.

Democracy relies on two kinds of restraints on ambition.  One restrain is the system of checks and balances.

The more important restraint is the the restraint of habitual disposition on the part of those who wield power.

What we see in Obama's immigration overreach is the culmination of a long developing sea-change on the part of the Left which defines democracy as getting the results that the Left wants rather than the following the process by which the will of the majority is determined.
