The Bush Administration, and their cronies wherever they are found in society, aren't "republicans."
They promote social aristocracy instead of popular sovereignty.
They promote anti-republican practices in the governance of our corporations, and in the governance of our political institutions.
They promote authoritarian decree over the rule of law.
They promote legal exceptionalism over constitutional and statutory due process.
They promote national exceptionalism over international law.
They promote ideological arguments over fact-based reason.
They promote superstition over science.
