So besides an amendment He signed a presidential directive in May that gave him the right to suspend regular government activities in the case of an emergency, and HE gets to decide what constitutes an emergency. Many people are concerned that he will use this directive to continue his presidency after it should be over.

Is there other ways to do this? Have you seen any concern of such a thing happening?

For about the 300th time, no.

Why this absurd notion persists through nearly 40 years of American politics is beyond me, other than to say that patriotic Americans (Republicans) live in a world where principle rules, and would be the first in line to say the constitution is to be obeyed, and throw the treasonous bastard out, and political Americans (Democrats) would say whatever means justify the ends.

Question thier patriotism?

No. the left has none.

What an idiotic answer to diedagain's question, which had nothing to do with being a republican or democrat. I guess you're one of the 23%, huh?

Diedagain, there is concern on all sides of the political aisle regarding this administration's willingness to give up their power, when the time comes.

And aaaaa is correct. This notion is indeed 40 years old, because that was when Richard M. Nixon became president.

See any correlations? Nah.

Who forced Nixon out?
Who kept Xlinton in?
History speaks for itself.
Party above principle has always been the Demoncrat mantra.
