I'm nervousposted by The Vidiot @ 12:15 PM Permalink The latest assualt on the Constitution, the one I mentioned below, where Bush can now declare martial law and utilize any state's national guard at any time, no matter what, has been playing in the back of my mind like a dripping faucet.
What is going on? Why am I so nervous?
If you look back on everything this administration has done -- the eavesdropping, the manipulation of intelligence, the torture, all of it -- taken in toto, it's obvious that they have had this plan all along, a plan to wipe out the Constitution as we know. In fact, if you read about the possible pocket veto of the Military Commistion Act.
Excerpt: “The Military Commission Act is not law!” the man barked. “The ‘pocket veto’ clause of the constitution has already nullified it.”It's almost as if he's gotten to a point where he's challenging anyone to bring it to the Supreme Court. Like "I dare you. G'head."
He then pointed out to the national radio audience exactly what the part about “pocket veto” in Article One, Section 7 of the U. S. Constitution means. Indeed, it appears that President Bush’s signing of the infamous “6166,” which in effect eliminates the 4th Amendment protection of citizens in their homes and a whole lot more, is moot. He was too late.
Why could they be doing such a thing, I mean, beyond the usual "power wants no constraints" sort of thing? Is it about the creation of the North American Union that some of the websites have been going on about for years? I haven't a clue. But the Constitution, if it still exists, is inches away from being unplugged. And if the American public continues to act like the Constituion has a DNR (do not resuscitate), then, well, the US as we know it (or at least how we think we know it) is a goner.
