    "Throwing the bums out" with a flourish, was step number one, but it won't be enough to restore our integrity unless we hold them accountable.

    Picture an argument held decades from now with someone praising the US, and another person saying "well they were torturers during the ME wars at the beginning of the century."  Will person number one be able to reply "Yes, but then there was a backlash against Republicans in elections, and as soon as they elected a Democrat in the White House and took substantial majorities in Congress, they investigated, indicted and put people in jail for all of that.  Then they repealed and changed laws so it could never happen again."

    Will person number one be able to say that in years to come?
