"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

In 2003, now retired General Tommy Franks expressed his fear   that America was transitioning away from democracy.   In his view, all it will take is another terrorist attack, and our Constitution will be "discarded" in favor of a military form of government.   Apparently he was wrong.   Congress has given the military powers unheard of in a functioning democracy.    And we didn't need another terrorist attack for them to do it.
