President Obama has ordered a sixteen-year-old American citizen killed without due process . . .

. . . and that's apparently OK with his supporters (because you never hear any of them complain about it any more, now that there's an election on).

David Hoffman has spent 40 years building a sustainable home that respects the environment, but because he didn't get the right permits, he must be stopped, pay a $200,000 fine, and have his home torn down.

And Demopublicans want to tell me that Libertarians are the nutty ones.

The administrations decision to target Anwar al-Awlaki has evolved into something like "an Obama doctrine" when it comes to targeted killing. The idea that American citizenship is no more a refuge against the attacks of American drones than farflung geography; the idea that the secret deliberations of the executive branch count as "due process" even when an American citizen is being considered for execution without trial; the idea, indeed, that "due process does not guarantee judicial process": all these ideas have entered the public sphere largely because the Obama administration made the extraordinary decision to target and kill an American citizen named Anwar al-Awlaki.
