Come on Peter-rachet it up.

Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio is concerned that with Bush's executive order 51 which redefines government continuity, and contravenes our constitution, is perhaps a conspiracy that needs to be investigated.
When he asked to view the documents, which are held in the secure "bubble-room", he was denied access even though he has top security clearance and is a leading member of the U.S. House on the Homeland Security Committee.
"We're talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America," DeFazio says. "I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee."

"Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right," DeFazio said.
Do you think?
Simply put, the order gives the president the power to assume control of all governments, Federal, State, Local and Tribal, in the event of a catastrophic national disaster, terrorist attack or civil unrest. All this without the debate or input from congress and now he won't even let them look at the plans.
Impeach Bush now before martial law.

Although he's a Democrat, DeFazio often shows remarkable common sense. There is no justification for a refusal to permit him to review the documents, and Bush & Co. are approaching lunar orbit.

Yep. And for anyone who is not concerned with the amassing of all these extra-constitutional powers to think ahead to the next election. If there is one. Do you want the powers to go to Hilary and friends?
