Something lacking in my education--how does he pull that off? Can a 
president issue a presidential order to spend, say, two hundred billion 
dollars on an optional war without authorization from Congress? I think 
not. So, how is it happening? Are all of the president's party enthralled? 
Are all of the opposition party afraid to disagree with votes? How the hell 
is this happening? Have we arrived at a dictatorship?
