    Bush is taking little mini-steps on his way to a totally authoritarian fascist dictatorship.  He already has many Halliburton concentration camps built all over the country.  When everything is in place, he will just declare martial law and then make himself president-- for life.  I hope it does not take more than just impeachment by Congress and then conviction by the Senate to remove him.  He is slowly raising the heat under the pot so the frog won't jump out before it is cooked.

      It might have worked in 2004, but it won't now.  To enforce martial law, he'd need the military to cooperate.  Now that he and Don Rumsfeld have thoroughly antagonized the military, aside from Jack D. Ripper die-hards and suckups like Peter Pace, I suspect he runs a great risk of general mutiny if he tries anything like this.  Lots of military troops and officers still remember what they're defending, and it ain't George Bush.
