  •  Will be struck down. (4.00)
    I don't see how this law wouldn't violate the seperation of powers. There must be a limit to the devolution of Congressional authority to the executive. The ability of the executive (in this case an exectuive agency) to suspend any law outside a time of national emergency without the unique consent of Congress wouldn't stand up to judicial review. Line-item veto got struck down, because it gave to much power to the executive. This case seems even more blatant.
    •  Totally unconstitutional... (4.00)
      It not only violates the separation of powers, but infringes on what have been termed "fundamental" due process rights by the Supreme Court-- the major purpose of this bill, as far as I can see, is to allow the federal government to seize land, without notice and without paying compensation, in utter and complete violation of the 5th Amendment.
    •  Let's see... (none)
      it will be struck down by, oh yeah, the court that installed king george. makes sense to me!

      (revolutionaries, stay on the ready)

      When will you be "ready to fight fifty years to win"?
