Ja, so why worry?  The constitution is the reason why POTUS has any power at all.  Without that, he is just another person.  If POTUS stays within the ConUS, he commands the military.  Otherwise not.  Do let me assure you, if POTUS could possibly by any means seize power, they would have done it a long time ago, starting in the late 1700s.  The founders knew this and and wrote the law so that POTUS couldn’t.  They understood the intoxicating effect of power.  So they limited it.  The system works.


Given our current situation, I would think it is governors we need to watch.  There are some of them who think their word is law.  But every state has a legislature, and the legislature makes law, not the governor.
