In the final analysis...

"If an act of government... violates the liberty of the people, it is of little importance who did it or how he came to have power to do it; it is of little importance whether a dictator gained his power by accident of birth, by force, or by the vote of the people." -- F.A. Harper Liberty: A Path to Its Recovery

In fact, it is of little importance if it is done by the legislature through the foolish or dastardly acts of the elected representatives of the people and merely signed into law by an equally foolish or dastardly president. The liberty of the people is still diminished.
