"It's just a goddamned piece of paper"

Yes, the Bush administration is trying to tell us that spying on us will make us safer. With these types of statements, they attempt to distract us away from their full court press to increase presidential power. So along those lines...

Today, in a wide ranging internet search I found several very interesting tidbits of information: Bush, in an end of the year push to get Republicans to support the renewel of the Patriot Act and after facing some oppostion concerning its Constitutionality (yes, many Republicans still believe in the Constitution, and God bless them for it), actually said (screamed apparently)... wait for it... "stop throwing the Constitution in my face. It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!" Wow, did he just say that? Personally, I don't care if you're Democrat or Republican, pro-choice or pro-life, pro-government or pro-business, pro-war or pro-peace, this statement should shake you to the core. It should also unveil the real purpose behind Bush's ordering of NSA spying.

Another bit of info I came across was perhaps just as insidious. In the renewel of the Patriot Act, the same documant that prompted the above outburst from the Bush-man, there is a little known clause that allows for the creation of an actual Federal Police Force, with the power to conduct warantless arrests of any person conducting an "offense against the United States." That sounds like a substantial shift toward the police state, if you ask me. And, not that they didn't have plenty of other reasons but is that why there were Republicans balking at the Patriot Act renewel?

My conclusion, this President needs to be stopped, and impeached if neccessary. Otherwise, we can say goodbye to freedom.

what about 2008, when someone else, presumably, gets elected? you think election fraud (see this) will let them get their own person in again?

2008 will quite possibly get stolen again, unless there is an overwhelming tide against the perpetuators of the fraud (that is a cadre of Republican elites and bit players).
