Americans' unrealized "peace dividend"

...The era of America's political chameleonic experience saw its apogee with charismatic Bill Clinton. It was during his two terms in office that the scant waters of American liberalism were forced to pass through a filter to get any and all progressive impurities out of the way. before they could be allowed to merge into the American "mainstream." The surviving Democratic Party became de facto indistinguishable from the Republican Party: the same church, a similar domestic agenda, and identical foreign policy dogma. just two different collection plates for politicians to attain power...

First the Facts, Then the Acts

...Politicians are increasingly isolating themselves from the people they are supposedly representing. It is virtually impossible to contact a politician unless you are a constituent, regardless of the committees they sit upon.

The two decisions define many of the Usurpation's actions as felony conspiracies against citizen rights -- in violation of 18 USC 241 -- including years of violating the Geneva Conventions and warantless wiretapping against US citizens.

Gore decision -- so that we can prevent the recurrence of any such presidential usurpation in the future...

...What appears as unforgivable to the Afghan people, perhaps more so than anything else, is the indifference in which they are treated, and the whitewashing of misdeeds by the occupiers. Although Karzai has been vocal demanding accountability for the coalition's behavior, particularly on key incidents where innocent Afghan lives were presumed lost at the hands of Americans, the lack of credible resolution has rendered him just another puppet head-of-state. His strength and resolve, Afghans say, start and finish in his vocal chords - whatever the Pashtun saying for "all talk, no show." ...
