I respectfully request that you read the article and post excerpts from it that substantiate the title of your thread.

Thank you.


Exercising sweeping emergency powers buried within Presidential Decision Directives (PDDs), unelected officials could suspend the Constitution, declare martial law and create an Executive Branch dictatorship that rests solely on the power of the U.S. military.


I skimmed the link and did not find anything to suggest that BUSH was planning to suspend the US Constitution through Martial Law.

I shouldn't have to read an article in order to supply excerpts/information that support the title of some of these threads.

The author should do so.

Most of the article spoke about the use of weaponry and police force during times of civil unrest.


Why does the excerpt state that UNELECTED officials could suspend the Constitution.
