The President just signed a directive that gives The President nearly unlimited dictatorial powers if The President determines we are in a national emergency. How could this have happened? I presume it’s because of the powers granted to The President during the Patriot Act by the Republican Congress after 9/11 when no one feared that oppression could ever occur in these United States.
The directive grants dictatorial powers to The President to assure that a Constitutional Government endures.
But we’re not oppressed. How could we be if we still have easy access to hot dogs and reruns of Nanny and the Professor?
