What Is A Proactive State Of Emergency?

The Obama Administration has declared a national state of emergency over the H1N1 flu virus, even though it acknowledges that no actual emergency exists. “It’s important to note that this is a proactive measure,” says.

What is a proactive emergency? An emergency might exist sometime in the future, which is why the Obama Administration is claiming the legal power now to overrule laws as it is only supposed to do whenever an emergency is in progress.

Using this logic, what’s to stop President Obama from declaring a proactive state of emergency curtailing our constitutional rights based upon the proactive worry that a terrorist attack might take place sometime in the future?

Oh, wait. President Obama is already doing that – continuing the policy begun under George W. Bush.

Let’s just throw the law all the way down the toilet, as long as we’re at it, and declare a proactive state of emergency due to the invasion from Mars that might take place. We don’t want to be caught unprepared, do we? If you keep your freedom of speech, the Martians win!
