The Alarming Scope of the President’s Emergency Powers

This article, titled The Alarming Scope of the President's Power by Elizabeth Goitein in the January/February 2019 Atlantic Magazine is very concerning. I recommend you read it no matter what your political persuasion may be.

I did not realize the scope and past use of presidential emergency powers over the years and this article details how and why we are where we are with their use. You will be quite surprised. We must do something now to curtail and put checks in place so that the president in the present and those in the future cannot abuse this power like some in the past have done.
