Q: Should a president be able to sign an executive order featuring legislation that failed in Congress?

no

“No, the president should not be allowed to circumvent the Congress. Every time this happens, the government’s separation of powers deteriorates, and the United States drifts further away from its revolutionary republican (no, not the political party) roots and creeps closer to monarchy our Founding Fathers fought so adamantly to secede from.”

Siegen from Texas

yes

“The president is a well-qualified person for the job and is going to make a very well informed or thought out decision to help progress or maintain the country so he will make the best decision.”

Mateo from Kansas

Think the Vote helps you to understand controversial topics and current events. Thinking through your vote is more than showing up on Election Day and picking the person that you like the best—it’s showing an interest in the world and the issues that surround you every day.

Bridge the Divide

“Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.”
