    Could you argue that obama isnt an imperial president because he has to use powers of persuasion to help push legislation or approve appointments? Or is it not relevant

    Haha see the fact you say that makes me think it won't come up!


    Regardless, good luck to each and everyone of you tomorrow, hope it all goes well and the paper is kind!
    And on a side note, no more politics at school ever again! (Unless I flop and have to retake )

    The gun one isn't even in affect (correct me if i'm wrong), better to use the DACA one. https://www.uscis.gov/immigrationaction
    DACA was an example of executive action - specifically prosecutorial discretion. An example of an exec order is the 2014 exec order 13468 which raised fed minimum wage

    Imperial:
    Libya
    Signing statements and executive orders (like on immigration, currently being looked at by Supreme Court with US v Texas)
    Executive agreements (Iran)
    Veto (Keystone Pipeline)

    Not imperial:
    Checks and balances remain (2013 shutdown)
    Obamacare watered down by pro-life Dems
    Guantanamo Bay is still open
    Supreme Court has checked and his actions are generally ok (Sebelius)

    What is the difference between broken branch and least powerful branch?

    Is broken branch where it basically fails its functions, and so least powerful branch is comparing all three of executive and legislature?
