A Threat to Liberty
You’ll never see it on TV. You won’t hear about it on the radio. It won’t be in Time magazine, even if a half a million people are involved.
But dissent is alive and well in the English speaking world. Nonviolent war protesters are thanked in Great Britain. Senator Kohl in Wisconsin has a friendly exchange with war protesters. However, in Rick Santorum’s America, they are slapped with conspiracy charges. Monique Frugier and Bill Perry send pictures from an antiwar protest at Senator Santorum’s office in Philadelphia. Philadelphia is, as most Americans know, the birthplace of Liberty in America. Let’s hope that’s not where it dies.

More than a threat to liberty, but hell on earth. Are we supposed to survive two more years? What is wrong with America? Is this dry-drunk of President so powerful or is the entire country dry-drunk? This man should be removed immediatly!
"The current version of the Military Commissions redefines an "unlawful enemy combatant" (UEC) so broadly that it could include anyone who organizes a march against the war in Iraq"
"Examples of people who could be detained indefinitely with no access to a court include:
A foreign tourist wearing an anti-Bush t-shirt at the Statue of Liberty
A protester at an immigration rally who has lived in the U.S. since she was six months old and is a lawful, permanent resident"
