Freedom and the Omnipotent Power to Assassinate

1-Dees - drones As a kid growing up, did you ever think you’d live under a government that had the omnipotent power to assassinate you and every other American citizen? If you heard about some communist regime or other totalitarian government wielding the omnipotent power to assassinate its own citizens, you wouldn’t be surprised. But I’ll bet that the vast majority of Americans never thought they would end up living under a governmental structure that had that sort of power over the citizenry. That’s certainly not the type of governmental structure that the Framers brought into existence with the Constitution. The federal governmental structure that the Constitution brought into existence was one whose powers were limited to those enumerated in the Constitution itself. The power to assassinate people, Americans or foreigners, was not among those enumerated powers.
