FEARS `EMERGENCY' EXECUTIVE ORDERS

I can't believe that the American people and our Congress will let this current president get away with the executive orders he has signed. I don't care what he may deem a "national emergency," it is no reason to take all of our rights away.

* EO10995: Seizure of all communications media in the United States.

EO10997: Seizure of all electric power fuels and minerals -- public and private.

* EO10999: Seizure of all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control of highways, seaports and waterways.

* EO11000: Seizure of all American people for work forces under federal supervision including the splitting (up) of families if the government finds it necessary. (This one I find particularly frightening.)

* EO11001: Seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities -- public and private.

* EO11002: Empowers the postmaster general to register all men, women and children in the U.S.

* EO11003: Seizure of all airports and aircraft.

* EO11004: Seizure of all housing and finance authorities to establish Forced Relocation Designated areas to be abandoned as "unsafe."

* EO11005: Seizure of all railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities -- public and private.

* EO11051: Specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all executive orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic and financial crisis. ...

These orders would not have been passed if it were not the intention of the president to use them. Are we slowly being reduced to a military police state? The way these read it looks just that way.

I am afraid the American people are so trusting in the government to help them out that they would gladly give up all rights in order to feel "protected." This frightens me. It almost reminds me of a Nazi Germany not too long ago.
