Congressman Tom McClintock
The genius of our Constitution can be found in the separation of powers that has preserved our freedom for 225 years. The American Founders recognized that what had gone so terribly wrong in Europe was that the same organ of government that made the law also enforced that law and adjudicated it. All the powers were in the same hands.
