Lady Liberty is crying

My heart is broken. We have lost so much of who we are as a nation in the last five years. This says it better than I can; read it and weep with me. And if you can bear more details about the bill and voting, it's here.

"Today, tears would flow down the olive robe of the Statue of Liberty if she were human.

"But she is just an inanimate symbol. We are the ones who have to cope with the pain of a democracy destroyed in a political play for power and permanent one-party rule, which is not a Constitutional form of government. That is called a dictatorship.

"And the one thing in common with dictators through history, whether Communist or fascist, is their state-sanctioned ability to torture people at will. . . . With the law passed on September 28th by Congress, we have become the Republic of torture. We not only have lost our claim to be a civilizing force among nations and abandoned our Constitution, we have appeased the terrorists by doing so . . .

"We are only beginning to grieve for the great beacon of democracy and justice that we lost yesterday."

SSDD. The Soviet Republicans of Amerika will never be removed from power as long as the Dems keep nominating people that creep-out the average voter. Mondale, Dukakis, John FrankenKerry, etc. Where are the choices?
