  •  I have nothing to add to the post (none)
    other than to say this is the coolest thing I've read in a while:

    This is about the very foundations of democracy: Is the government our servant or our master? And is the president, who is elected to execute our laws, allowed to suspend them?

    I can hear the fabric of that "permanent Republican majority" ripping into shreds.  Odd, but the sound is sort of Nixonian.

    Part of me wants to cheer the downfall of these bastards; part of me is shaken to the core that these people have run away with this country so fast and so effectively.  Jesus.

    Yikes. Good thing I don't have guns.

    •  suspending our laws.... (none)
      when you hear bush and his (rendon group scripted) minions go forth and reiterate (over and over and over etc) that 9/11 changed everything ...NOW you know what they really mean...

      imho IF the democrats want to hit home, with america's middle class, concerning all this spying and lying they MUST tie the patriot act to COINTELPRO

      Boomers need to be reminded of another time when another secretive gov also used national security as a 'cover' to SPY on U.S. citizens without any reason other then to protect and preserve their stranglehold on unfettered political power.

      the patriot act IS the new cointelpro

      and the same old bunch of lying and spying right wing republicans support it.

        particularly prescient person, but I can clearly remember when Bush started using the "war" word that we were in deep shit.  When is going to end?  How will we know when it's over?  Who are the bad guys?  How can they surrender?  And on, and on.

        Worse than Watergate, worse than Vietnam.  I mean, shit man, I already did this when I was younger.
