Here we are two weeks into Donald Trumps presidency and the least we can say is that the ride so far has been anything but smooth.

From the awkward rolling out of executive orders that seem to have had little to no review or vetting by other parts of the administration to the unintentional (intentional?) irritation or outright antagonizm of other countries and foreign leaders.

Many would agree that recently the United States has been a little weak in standing up for our values and protecting our and our allies interests internationally.  But compensation for this must not lead to a wide swing to the other extreme, where our values and morals are tossed aside for the sake of expediency and we become the bad we seek to resist.

And the rule of law. We must never allow the executive or legislative branches to believe they are beyond the laws or constitution of our country.

Just Ordering it does not make it so.
