    The neocons know the have this one shot. They have everything they have been dreaming about for 30 years. The presidency, both houses of congress, a "world war" being touted as on the same scale and urgency as WW2 and fascism, a weakened judicial system, the patriot act, unlimited spying powers. Everything they need to make their power grab permanent is in place. Except for habeas corpus. It is one of their only obstacles. These fuckers know if they blow it, many of them are likely to wind up in prison. Expect anything.

      ...that most liberals oppose the death penalty.

      If they actually succeed at overturning the US Constitution, howeveer, they should fear for their lives.  The rest of the world will not tolerate a rogue superpower for long.

      •  And who can do what about it? (0+ / 0-)

        I sure hope your right about the rest of the world not tolerating a rogue superpower for long.  Just wonder what they could do about it anyway.  

        In the parent to the parent of this comment: "Everything they need to make their power grab permanent is in place."  That thought seems incredible here in this country.  Are we to naive to believe something like that could happen or to naive to believe that it couldn't? And who can do what about it?

        Beer, politics & pizza - must have died and gone to heaven.
