Constitutional Defense Watch Issue #1

Today's blog was prompted by this article. I suggest a read even though its long. In particular, the reader who still isn't convinced of our slippage into a police state should read the part on signing statements.

For today, however, I want to pass on what this author says about high ranking whistleblowers.

"Army Generals. Top-level CIA officials. NSA operatives. White House cabinet members. These are the kind of people that Republicans fantasize about being, and whose judgment they usually respect. But for some reason, when these people resign in protest and criticize the Bush administration en masse, they are cast as traitorous, anti-American publicity hounds. Ridiculuous. The fact is, when people who kill, spy and deceive for a living tell you that the White House has gone to far, you had damn well better pay attention. We all know most of these people are staunch Republicans. If the entire military except for the two guys the Pentagon put in front of the press wants Rumsfeld out, why on earth wouldn't you listen?"

Did you catch that, people who "kill, spy and decieve for a living" are saying that the white house is out of bounds. Who else is there to listen to.

Spread the word on the net while we still can. With the net we can move information quicker than any other grassroots movement in history. Unfortunately, that same technology allows big brother to track more effectively. And, since info on the net is changeable, something like the memory hole in 1984 is plausible.

The constitution must be protected from the very entity charged to protect it.
