    for many politicians.   9/11 gave us The Patriot Act. It went through the House and Senate so fast, 90% who signed it never read it.  The reason given for this act was to counter terrorism. Bush and friends "forgot" to tell us it also gave them power to invade our private lives without warrant, detain immigrants without due process. immigrants and suspected terrorists, also denying them legal counsel. They basically told the Constitution itself to go to hell.
    The judicial system has ruled against many sections repeatedly.
    9/11 gave Bush an excuse to invade Iraq, claiming there were WMD's. Saddam Hussein, according to the neocons was far more dangerous than bin Laden.  Now, hundreds of declassified documents prove Bush, Chaney, C. Rice, to mention a few, lied, lied, lied to the American people.  Bush almost have the CIA a nervous breakdown.  There are countless documents outlining bin Laden's plans to attack on our soil. Mass casualties was his intent and this is clearly stated in the warnings. Bush ignored them. His claim that bin Laden was harmless is bullshit. In October of 2000,  Al-Qaeda bombed the USS Cole, killing 17 and injuring 39 of our sailors. AND HE'S NOT DANGEROUS, HOW??  C. Rice  lied, knowing full well, unlike Susan Rice, she was lying.

    I'm for cleaning house in our capital. The warmongering politicians are the ones who profit from wars. Their claim of caring and protecting Americans from evil has actually brought evil to our doorstep.  I'm for kicking their ass, HARD.  

    Grover Norquist is a boil on the right butt cheek of humanity.
