I think we'd all be amazed to see just how well behaved our presidents and senators can be if they know they can hang for their actions
The last thing I want is a government/president that's afraid to act or a military that second guesses everything. I think we do what we do because we're the USA and because no one else will. That's what makes us, us for better or worse. Think about how much BAD the US has eradicated from this earth. Not to mention it's also in OUR best interest to keep the other countries in check (N Korea, Iran).
