    The day Bush signed into law Joint Resolution 23, containing the text:

    "That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons."
    (bold face added)

    he became defacto dictator of the United States.

    This law gives him authority to do as he pleases, and all he has to do is say that he has determined it is required to protect us from terrorism.

    We may as well have passed a law saying the President may act as he pleases as long as he says "abra cadabra open sesame" first.


    Yes folks, its worse than we all thought. The United States of America was attacked on September, and a mere 7 days later, on September 18th, 2001, it was destroyed. Not by the people who had attacked it, but by the very people who have sworn to defend it.


    I'm sure most of you right wing warmongering types will say "yes, but the administration isn't coming after me, or you, so what's the problem?" ... but I have to ask in reply, what's to stop him?


    The President and any Senator or Congressman who signed this bill are guilty of treason, and deserve a traitor's fate.

    Can you read?

    Alright, then read the part of that bill which says the president can do whatever he wants to anyone.

    And tell me how that doesn't make him a dictator.

    C'mon spiderman. You know I can read. Don't be an ass. I'm just laughing at how low your rep is--figured you'd have a sense of humor about it. I know about this bill already. After 9/11 Congress pretty much gave him total power over the military. It has the potential to be a really bad thing, but I don't think Bush is an evil person who sees this bill as giving him absolute power. I think he truly is trying very hard to fight terrorism and to keep it off of our shores--I just think he bungles things a lot of the time because he's short-sighted, reactionary and kinda dumb.

    It doesn't matter how he "see's" the bill, the fact is, it gives him dicatorial powers, and EVERY PRESIDENT AFTER HIM until it is repealed. He SHOULD have known this when he signed it, hence, he is just as much a traitor as the Senators and COngressmen who signed it.
