What We Know is Not What We Do

On War with Iran:

On one hand, it is hard to believe that we are in such unreliable hands with this government, on the other, it is perfectly reasonable considering the care and attention we pay to what our elected officials say and do.

In the past, I would have said that it is impossible to entertain the idea that the executive thought it was within their purview only that they could declare war unilaterally since that was as far from the intent of the original constitution as possible.

\But in the current climate, the constitution and bill of rights have been set aside and unilateralism rules in a vacuum that in effect constitutes a dictatorship that extends to the people.

Yesterday, a confidante of Bush said that Bush had told him that God tells him what to do.

God told him to invade Iraq.

And 63% of the population blamed the Iraqis for 9/11.

When we are addled in the brain and afraid to enforce our constitutional rights, than we are primed for whatever this ruling cabal should decide to hand out.

Walter Krugman's book spells it all out.

We might as well understand the rules we operate under.

The dems will fall in line; the media won't touch it; and good people will behave in the way described by Reinhold Niebuhr when discussing how good people responded to the Nazi threat, there is not much hope.

If good people do not rise up and now, the future looks particularly bleak despite the fact that the Founding Fathers laid out a path for us.
