Abolish the Tools of the Imperial Presidency? Do you agree?

    


Ending the Imperial Presidency of Bush Jr by David Dees

 

In order to preserve the Republic, restore the Constitution, and uphold "the rule of law", the tools of Bush Jr's dictatorship must be renounced, rejected, and abolished. Do you agree?

 

His PATRIOT ACT gave him to power to spy on Americans at will and without a court order.

 

His AUTHORIZATION TO USE MILITARY (AUMF) gave him the power to declare any person on earth an enemy combatant and any nation on earth a threat, and authorized him to use military force on his say so alone.

 

His MILITARY COMMISSIONS ACT gave him the power to torture anyone without consequence, detain indefinitely anyone without charge, without a trial in open court, without due process, and without the right to "habeas corpus", on his say so alone.

 

The 110th Democratic Congress and President Obama and the 111th Democratic Congress have not rescinded any of these imperial, draconian laws, the tools of a dictator retained and intact.

 

In fact, Congress/Obama have renewed these anti-American laws, as if they were expecting the return of another monarch.

 

   

 


NO, we need these laws on the books for our own security
NOT sure
YES, all three Bush Jr laws need to be abolished to preserve our freedom
Bush Jr needed these laws after 9/11
