PERSPECTIVE
Stand up to White House, take back powers // David Hanan, Chambersburg

You have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. According to our Constitution, Article 1, only Congress shall make federal laws. However, since the `War and Emergency Powers Act` of 1932, every president has usurped lawmaking powers. Their `laws` are called executive orders . These EOs, not our Constitution, have been what is governing America. All of these EOs, which usurp the powers given in the Constitution to Congress, the states and the people need to be rescinded immediately, especially in light of the anticipated problems of Y2K.

The `War and Emergency Powers Act` enables that the president alone can declare a national emergency (as defined solely by the president) and, in effect, take away all of your rights and freedoms. Below is a list of powers that can be invoked when a `state of emergency` is declared. These unconstitutionally created laws represent far too much power to be in the hands of any one man, especially in our `free` republic. This power to define what constitutes an emergency is currently in the hands of a man who has trouble defining the meaning of such words as `is,` `alone,` and `sexual relations.`

It is time the Congress stood up to the executive branch and took back the powers granted to it in the Constitution.

Executive Orders : 12919: Sets up the legal machinery to provide for the complete takeover and control of every American by updating and re-empowering all of the EOs listed below: 10995: Federal seizure of all communications media. 10997: Federal seizure of all electric power, fuels, minerals, public and private. 10998: Federal seizure of all food supplies and resources, public and private, all farms and equipment. 10999: Federal seizure of all means of transportation, including cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind, and total control over all highways, seaports and waterways. 11000: Federal seizure of American people for work forces under federal supervision, including the splitting up of families if the government so desires. 11001: Federal seizure of all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private. 11002: Empowers the postmaster general to register all men, women and children in the United States of America. 11003: Federal seizure of all airports and aircraft. 1004: Federal seizure of all housing and finances, authority to establish forced relocation.
