Yep. Perfect time for a power grab. "We need tools to allow us to deal with this type of situation." I suspect rule of law, wisdom, transparent accounting and free markets aren't sufficient. Just make the man the Right Hand of God, vote him in as the new US Chavez, dictator el-supremo for life, and we've got someone in Washington fighting for US!
Okay. I think I just sprained either my tongue, or poked a hole in my cheek.
