    So now after reading your diary, I'm even more extreme in my thinking on BushCorosion and just wondering, would it be too overboard for me to want the American people to demand:

    An international group to be formed for the purpose of investigating the entire domestic actions of the Bush Administration and if not acting as an independent prosecutor with powers to convict, at least the ability to compare actions of BushCo and where they diverge from our constitution and at least be able to purge people that were "planted" and reverse actions that were illegal.

    I don't even trust our own congress to do it anymore...

    Homo Homini Lupus Est p.s. I'm a Winknut, true.

      I don't think this is over the top, but we have to face the same reality that the Right-Wing faced and dealt with a long time ago. It takes time for an internally consistent and cohesive idea to spread through a large part of the population.

      I doubt that the American People would demand such an inquiry for a long time, if ever. Most people are content to let the past be the past. Once Bush is gone, most people, even on our side, will breathe a sigh of relief and say "That's history. Let's move on."

      The important thing, from my point of view, is to create - and SUSTAIN - links in public consciousness between past wrongdoing and current and future impacts. Bush will leave behind the completion of a judiciary and a Department of Justice with a class and religious bias, and a bias in favor of a "unitary executive."

      We have to keep reminding Congress that its future in the Constitutional order is in mortal danger unless they undo the system that the Right has spent decades in building.

      We also have to make sure that ordinary citizens see the connection between this corrupted system and the personal welfare of their children. This will take a lot of disciplined, coordinated effort, and a LOT of patience, neither of which we have shown we have in great supply.
