Another Reality Check. . .
by The Old Hippie Because You Keep Allowing The “Impossible” To Get Even Worse
- “Threat of Martial Law in The United States is ‘Real’” - You Haven't Forgotten About the
“Detention Centers” Halliburton has been Building Around “The Land of the Free” - Right?
- “A Republic, If We Can Keep It.” - Ben Franklin was right: we have a Republic if we can
keep it. And we may be on the verge of losing it. Don’t bet your freedom and our republic
on the comforting assumption that election 2008 will take place as scheduled.
- “Do You Get It NOW?” - Domestically, they're no longer even trying to hide their aversion to
democracy and the Constitution. With his new Executive Order on “executive privilege,” for
example, Bush openly proclaims that he is untouchable by the rule of law; now there are only
two branches of government - the Legislative Branch is ignored as irrelevant - [and. . .]
Cheney/Bush more or less control them both.
- Quotes of the Week from The Crisis Papers site. -
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.”
“My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total. I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.”
at the Nixon Impeachment hearing,
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, It's just a goddamned piece of paper!”
George W. Bush
