The executive branch of our fine government is great and all but I for one think they are taking it just a little too far. The bills which are slipping through our view are a direct result of the government trying to take full advantage of the blind patriotism we are all feeling. These bills encroach on our civil liberties as well as they may mar our image in the world viewpoint. The motion in particular is the military tribunals, which throw the system of checks and balances into a state of disarray. By doing so the judiciary branch will wield far less power than it previously did. We may have done it before yes, but that does not change the fact that we need to see this through with all fairness.
