There Is Still Hope for Democracy in the USA
The judgment by Federal Judge Anna Diggs Taylor of Detroit yesterday has placed the Bush Administration\’s policy of spying on Americans\’ phone calls and email without warrants where it should be: Does the president have the right to abuse our constitutional rights without following the law of the land?
I do not want any one to die in this country or elsewhere if there is a way to avoid it; however, the president and Congress are bound by our Constitution and democracy.
How strange is it that Bush wants to spread democracy in the Middle East while at the same time he and the GOP have done major damage to our Constitution and civil rights?
Either we are a country of laws that everyone has to follow, including Bush, or we are not. It is that simple.
