Example of personal opinion
“The confidential Justice Department document about the president’s use of drones, which was
recently leaked to the press, relates to numerous concepts outlined in the textbook. First, there
are questions of executive authority. Article I of the Constitution states that the power to
declare war belongs to Congress. While the Justice Department document does not authorize
the president to declare war, it gives him unchecked power to take lethal measures. One of the
reasons for the Bill of Rights is to limit the power of government. In fact, preventing
government from amassing too much power was on the forefront of the framers’ minds as they
drafted the new constitution. Still, presidents have historically circumvented checks on the
executive branch with devices such as executive orders and signing statements.
