Despite what each sock may do, they still belong to the same puppetmaster. They are merely different methods of carrying out the same intentions.

Out of curiosity, could you point out the specific executive orders you have a problem with, or which ones you think constitute an overreach of executive power?
Seems to me like most of them have been pretty mundane and mostly harmless. Even the ones concerning guns.

The ones that say medical professionals have a say in who is banned from purchasing a firearm. According to the gun control act, only those who have been committed or who have been determined by a court to be mentally defective are restricted.
Simply saying, "this person could potentially be dangerous" and banning that person is just wrong. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty...
And it's more future executive orders that I'm worried about. Most of the time executive orders simply clarify laws that already exist. However the president still has the authority to bypass congress to make his own laws, assuming they don't get shot down. The executive branch is supposed to be the one that enforces current laws, not make new ones.

I think medical professionals are better qualified than courts to determine whether a person is mentally ill or unstable. It's not a matter of innocent or guilty because having a mental disorder isn't a crime, but such people shouldn't be allowed to own firearms, just as the blind cannot get driver's licenses.
Your earlier post indicated that you don't like Obama's use of executive orders so far, and the image seems to compare them to royal decrees. It's fine and reasonable to be worried about the growth of presidential power in general, but I don't see that much of a basis for your strong disdain of Obama's executive orders.
(Using children for political gain is of course deplorable.)
