More power than King George III of England

One of my fears is that we'll experience another 9/11 kind of event prior to the next presidential election, which could be the catalyst for at least another four years of Republican rule in the White House. It could also come from, or be blamed on Iran, putting us into a disastrous war that would make Iraqmire look like a skirmish.

But that might be the least of our problems now that Bush could literally take charge of the whole country, Congress included, in the event of a "national catastrophe," which would be defined by ... Bush. And we would have no recourse, not even to the Judiciary Branch.

This video is from a radio program where Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan, predicts we may be in a police state before the '08 elections. He also believes that this may have already been in the works for a long time by the current administration.
