Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

The End of Democracy!

Paul Craig Roberts has an excellent essay on this administration’s tyranny and its intention to destroy our democracy, delicate as it is. The question I have, and which he asks as well, is why are our fellow citizens and representatives allowing this?

Habeas Corpus is one of the bedrocks of our democracy. It is what differentiates our form of government from a Monarchy and/or a dictatorship. The power of one man, in this case the president, to hold anyone in custody without the individual's protection under the laws of our constitution, and international law, is the defining feature of tyranny and dictatorship.

If this law by Senator Graham is passed, Mr. Roberts has this to say about 2006:

When a Republican next campaigns, all he can say is "vote for me because I want power to lock you up and torture you."

Please read his essay, it is so clear on what we have in store for our future.

Be afraid, be very afraid, and contact your representatives today.
