    Friend's bulletin from somewhere. I make no assumtpions to the credibility of the source.

    Scary, no?
    -
    In my opinion, this is in no way a "time of crisis".

    TIMES ARE GOOD IN THE U.S.

    Bush, congress, get over your ****ing selves for God's sake.

    We are only a few steps away from a tyrannical, oppressive government. (ed: Meh, wasn't looking at my sig when I wrote that, but good James might be a truely great prophet.)

    (ed2: ) Eh, I just looked at the date of the atricle. April 05. Kinda old, neh? Still relevant maybe.

    Edited for your sake. :rolleyes:

    Ignore it if you want. It doesn't change whether Congress is working secretly to undermine the consitution.

    no they arent. because to do so, the president would have to sign the action into law, the supreme court would have to verify that it is constitutional, and to change the consitution would require a 2/3 vote. this would be all over the mainstream press by now if it were true. the fact that its from some myspace bulliten gives it no credibility whatsoever.

    I love how you ignored everything he said, quoting only what you actually had a retort to.

    Quote minage.

    You fail.

    It was irrelevant. I will show you.

    Patriot Act.

    That's why I stated the thread in the form of a question, and alluded to it's probable lack of credibility.

    It's not my information, it's not my source, I am not claiming this particular thing happened.

    The fact they tried is what's scary, and whether it is made into law or not is not important at this point.

    Sinko - Your comment is rendered null and pointless, as is everyone elses, but Ikerous as he is the only one to avoid being a complete jackass.

    No. Such legislation would have to jump through so many hoops that the media would have caught onto it. That is if it actually happened. Which it didn't.

    All I ask for right now is some evidence to compliment your statement, and some good reasoning as to how you think it cannot be implemented. I believe it is possible.
    My outlook on this issue is somewhat pessimistic.

    It'd be suicidal for the republican party to allow this to happen. Especially when you consider Bush's poll numbers. If the republicans ever wanted a chance at getting re-elected they wouldnt force a president on us, especially one we don't like.

    I think in the end they'd lose more than they'd gain

    Mulled over this for a few minutes and I think you are right. Even if he was allowed to run another term he would not get re-elected. The Republicans would be shooting themselves in the foot.

    Thank you for the serious consideration of this matter.

    I will not reply to any further posts.

    Are you asking for him to find evidence that this didn't happen? That's a logical fallacy.

    Since your the one making claims, the burden of proof is on you. Find a more credible source than a myspace bulletin first.

    The burden of proof is on you to prove that this conspiracy exists or is at least credible. A link from MySpace isn't going to cut it.

    If you're talking about Bush having a third term:

    I'm sorry, but I take offense to that. Our President, General Park Jung Hee also had three+ terms. And we weren't totalitarian. The Yu Sin constitution, which made the general president for 19 years, was voted in by 91.5% of everyone.

    Wow, you're an ignorant fool.

    You ignore every post saying the exact same thing, except for ikerous', right after you stated that he was the only one "not being an ass".

    The politics board is such a funny place.

    :LOL:
    The Patriot Act has nothing to do with adding ammendments to the constitution.

    edit: LOL You've used that as a reply twice and each time it had nothing to do with it and didn't make sense. Do you even know what the Patriot Act is? Criticism of it is worth taking time to look at and speak up about but if you don't even know what you're talking about or what it actually does then you should probably keep your mouth shut.

    Its easy to check. Any legislation would have made it to official websites and would be searchable.
    If you cant find it , it aint there.

    Guess what? Its not there.

    Now that the flaming is done, let's look at the article intelligently.

    The first five paragraphs are completely irrelevant filler material. Ignore.

    The article provides no bill number, and as I recall no media ever noticed the legislation. Wikipedia has no results for "Doomsday Legislation", and the top Google result provides for special elections if 100 members of the House die simultaneously--meaning "legislation in the case of doomsday", I guess. Americanfreepress.net has more on the legislation, with actual quotes. The quotes provided are sufficient for me to find the law at the House Web site. Please stand as we read from Clause 5 of Rule XX, with bold added for emphasis:

    So let me simplify this for you.

    First off, this law doesn't apply to all of government, just the House of Representatives. Only House members can take XTREME ACTION in catastrophic circumstances.

    Second, the House still has to have most of its members present to do anything. House operation continues as normal unless the following conditions are met:
    - a significant number of the House Representatives have been incapacitated due to attack, natural disaster, or similar calamity;
    - a report has been prepared on those incapacitated and those not incapacitated;
    - both the Majority and Minority Leaders of the House convene and agree on the legitimacy of the report;
    - the entirety of the Report is announced to whatever of the House remains.

    Third, this law does not allow as few as 15 people to spontaneously make judgements. The House has to call its members up--all 435 of them--72 hours in advance, then see how many couldn't come because they were incapacitated.

    The MySpace bulletin and any articles you've read about this are worthless fear-mongering and any bad feelings about it are completely insubstantiated. Which is probably why the media never got into it.
