America, where are you now?

Avedon summarizes the results nicely.

America was founded on a number of liberal principles, including the rights to have the government show due cause to confine an individual, to be able to contest confinement. (along with a proscription for crual and unusual punishment) And these principles weren’t restricted to “Americans”. They are for all people.

And now, the US Congress, my representatives in Government, have authorized Government agents to kidnap, transport and confine US citizens without trial, in addition to having authorized those agents to kidnap, transport and confine people, without trial, from all around the world.

And both of my senators supported this shredding of America.

Just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s right, or constitutional.

I imagine that Salazar will pull a Nighthorse Campbell now and switch parties.
