I would like to show you what our president Mr. Bush did alittle while ago.
This directive was signed into law by Bush without going through Congress on May 9, 2007. It gives the president full powers over federal, state, local, territorial and tribal government in case of a "Catastrophic Emergency". The directive makes no reference to Congress and its language appears to negate any requirement that the president submit to Congress a determination that a national emergency exists.
The president willl have the power to dismiss congress and cancle any elections. He will be able to direct any and all government and business activities until the emergency is declared over. He will have the power to sieze any business/civilian property and pass any law into effect without congress even seeing it ( kind of like he did this one).
So the next time we have any major floods/hurrican/earthquake/tornados the president can declair the powers granted by this directive without congressional approval or any oversight thus turning the United States into an instant dictatorship.
