Here is What Happens Wen You FAIL to Fire Congress:
Did Obama give back the power Bush arrogated to the government through the Patriot Act? No. He allowed a sixteen year old boy to be arrested and imprisoned without evidence of a crime, without a warrant, without judicial review, and without the right to habeas corpus. HE HAS NOW BEEN IMPRISONED FOR TWO MONTHS! Watch this video:
The Patriot Act was passed by Congress. Bush drafted the version that was passed and substituted it for the House version in the dead of night, and Congress (Dems and Repubs) voted on it without even having read any part of it.
The Dems then proceeded to"bitch" about the "civil liberties" the Act threatens - but apparently only for as long as Bush was president. Now, you don;t hear a whisper from them, and the Republicans still defend it just because it was their big "achievement" back then.
Still, a full 96 percent of US Reps and Senators were re-elected, both in 2006 and 2008 - the same ones that passed this atrocious law.
So, in the end, who was responsible for the Patriot Act? All of us - because we didn't fire the perpetrators. We do not force these people to account to us. Instead, we agree to account to them for everything we do with our money when we file our income tax returns - those of us who do, anyway.
If you think you can change this without mercilessly firing all in Congress who voted for this Act, you are deceiving yourself.
Listen to the only man in media-land who actually talks about firing non-compliant politicians.
Then join "We Surround Them" - because we do. We just have to fully realize that fact.
