The Shadows Of Fascism

"As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air -- however slight -- lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness." -- Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75)

Why do so many Americans not see this now?

Responsibility and War Powers

...In general, people don't wake up in the morning with the desire to drop bombs on other people in foreign countries that they do not know, have never injured them in any way, and have never threatened them or their family. This desire is always government-induced and government-sponsored. When it comes to mass murder around the world, the state is second to none....Far from ending "war of all against all", government institutionalizes it; it makes war a bona fide business....

An Onion On Steroids

Exposing the truth about GOP rule is analogous to peeling off layers of an onion on steroids. This is quite apparent in two of the most important news items this past week: the January 2003 British memo reported by the New York Times and the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in which former Nixon aide John Dean, agreed with Senator Feingold about censuring President Bush.


First let's address the latest revelations from our friends in the United Kingdom. When you combine this memo with the original "Downing Street" memo one can't help but believe the worst. Bush and Blair shamelessly deliberated over how to "provoke" a confrontation with Saddam. This is reminiscent of Adolph Hitler conjuring up a pre-text to invade Poland in 1939. If that offends anyone - I don't care. What they did is a criminal act and dishonored my country.

Article VI, Clause 3, U.S. Constitution

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all the executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States"

Not many people are aware of this clause in the constitution.  I suggest we share it with those who believe that the United States Constitution is founded on christianity.  The book where I found this quote is online at http://demischools.org/philadelphia.pdf it's called Conspiracy in Philadelphia-Origins of the United States Constitution.

Is the Death of Freedom a Worthwhile Price for Security?

...America has proven itself strong enough to handle terrorist acts. Is it strong enough to survive the internal assault on what makes America unique? Can we afford to lose our Constitution and live under an increasingly totalitarian regime which justifies its systematic removal of our rights in the name of antiterrorism? Can we afford to have the wealth of our nation bled off and laundered by a pack of international cartel jackals and their friends in the White House? Can we afford to sacrifice our young men and women in an endless, world-wide war, unilaterally declared by the White House? ...
