This situation is dangerous, in my opinion. I have friends from Venezuela, and this EO really sounds like the kind of stuff Hugo Chavez did as he was grabbing power. We absolutely can't just let this slide and hope a future president will cancel it. In fact, perhaps our most potent argument to our liberal friends might be that a super-conservative president might use this power in ways they wouldn't like. Everyone--liberal and conservative--who doesn't want to become Venezuela North needs to follow up and demand repeal of this EO. We can't wait. Theoretically, he could cancel the election in the interest of national security. Thank you, Mr. Norris, for bringing this to our attention.
