...to keep themselves in power? I keep noticing soft signs, that suggest the current administration does not look, or act, like a group that is going anywhere soon. GW has recently enacted law which gives him authority to assume dictatorial power, when faced with a national emergency. What is surprising about this new law is that congress was not involved in developing it, or implementing it. Furthermore, the president already had most of the crucial powers required to protect America in cases of a national emergency. Some of the alarming new powers: 1) The president alone is able to decide what is a national disaster. 2) The president does NOT have to have any concurrence with the Supreme Court, or Congress. He now only needs to consult with the head of Homeland Security - a member of his staff. 3) The national disaster can happen anywhere in the world. It only has to impact American interests. 4) The president can suspend any, or all, workings of federal, state, local and tribal governments. 5) The president has the authority to control all US business and commerce. 6) All state national guards, police forces (including tribal) come under his control. 7) The president alone decides when the national emergency is over. The WH has the power to suspend the elections. The question is WOULD they do it? In my opinion, these people are drunk with power. They have killed over 3500 American kids already, just to promote an agenda they had before ever taking office. 9/11 have them the excuse. They lied through their teeth making a case for war. They have failed every test which might show they had any sense of honesty, or decency. They thumb their nose at the law. I believe there is a very good chance they will attempt to remain in power. Iran makes me very nervous. They are once the WH making a case for war. We cannot wait for GW's term to expire. We need impeachment now.
