That makes it sound as if the military is our enemy. I know some people won't agree with me, but I believe that the military would be effective in preventing such a dictatorship.

The reason I am confident in this is because a while ago, I was talking to a close friend, a First Lieutenant in the Army, about this scenario. He assured me that it is very unlikely that the military would ever allow that to happen.

OK, I'll stir the pot since we are talking hypothetically. If Cheney ran for President having already served as Vice-President, what would prevent Bill Clinton from running for Vice-President?

A Clinton-Clinton ticket. There seem to be no rules preventing that.

I mean we are in the midst of the Bush Father - Son regime, why not
a husband - wife.

Hypothetically he could be on the ticket as Vice President as it is a separate office. In the event of the president being unable to discharge her duties the consitutional line of succession would skip him and the Speaker of the House would become President.

There is a little stumbling block called the Constitution of the United States.
Any President could theoretically suspend this but it would only be through brute force. Presidential Executive Orders do not come above the Constitution in terms of authority.

The constitution stopped mattering a long time ago.

and on, and on, and on.

I agree with Bush usin some sort of executive power. I've thought about this since the second election. The Constitution? Whats that? lol, since when did Bush ever consider rules? Ask the U.N.
