"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge is the foundation of all totalitarian governments" - Who Said it? (click here)

Let me spell it out.  Today, the president and vice-president have the power to throw anyone into prison as a terrorist, claiming emergency powers the War on Terror.

One of Obama's campaign promises was to reverse any and all unconstitutional laws within the first 100 days in office, saying:

I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution.

I still holding my breath.
