Did You Know That The President Can Suspend The Constitution?

The Constitution is the guiding legal document of the United States of America. Our laws are based on the Constitution. It is to the United States as the Ten Commandments is to the existence of mankind. Issues that reach the Supreme Court of the land are decided based on their consistency with this grand ole' document. It's not a bad thing ------- in principle.

But, but, there is a big but that's at play here. Did you know the President can also suspend parts of the Constitution, by Executive Order --- a Presidential Power not designated by the Constitution, so to speak. Are you ready for me to share what he/she can suspend? Here goes. I'll just cite a few executive orders that makes this possible:

  • The government can take over all electrical power, gas petroleum, fuels and minerals.
  • ........can take over all food reesources and farms.
  • ........can take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
  • ........can relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
  • .......can operate a national registration of all persons.

These are just a few. Man, this stuff is scarely, and you thought you knew it all.
