America is dropping like a stone in rankings of freedom. As power accumulates in one person, expect that to continue, says George Mason University law professor and author Frank Buckley. In this interview, Buckley discusses his book, The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America. He explains that the evolution of the U.S. presidency into "something like an elective monarch" is not what the framers of the Constitution intended. Rather, they saw a parliamentary regime in terms of separation of powers. What we have, says Buckley, is not a device to constrain the president, but one that immunizes him from criticism by Congress.
