My big concern is if there will even be an election. The Homeland insecurity act allows for the continuation of powers in the event of national emergency. Something they didn't even have during World War 2 but suddenly need now. My money is on a terrible occurrence between now and then. a sad faced monkey president will appear on television and not mention the lack of election, only the need to postpone during this time of crisis.CMI think that is a little ridiculous. Could you please provide any evidence that President Bush is planning on declaring a crisis and using this Homeland Security Act? I do not believe the American people would stand for such a thing either, short of a massive invasion or attack and as soon as the media makes the public believe that the crisis is manageable the public would outcry for an election.
If there were any proof available then there would be a quick little coup de ta here in the U.S. Real quick. Others including myself have expressed trepidation at the possibility of Bush pulling a stunt like that, remote yes, but just the fact that it has entered the minds of many people other than conspiracy theorist is in itself a frightening development in our country.
No one suggested such a thing even during the Watergate crisis with Nixon but Bush and Cheney have demonstrated a level of Arrogance and disregard for the Constitution that they make Nixon seem like an honorable man.
I doubt such a thing will occur, but as I said, just the fact that people think he “might” is frightening.
