    "the president's latest assertion that he alone can safeguard our civil liberties isn't just disturbing and wrong. It's downright un-American."

    ***********

    Does Bush have such a poor understanding of US History as to think that we were designed without checks and balances? Or is he simply delusional?

    wow what an intelligent retort. You should have stayed in school past the 4th grade (as you like to brag about). Perhaps then you would be less inclined to vote Un-american.

    During similar times in the past the President has groped for more power than what the founding fathers had intended. What Bush is doing isn't right, or proper, and it certainly isn't making us safer; but it is typical in an historic sense. Give things another ten years or so and the America you remember, from September 10th 2001, will be back.

    I should also note that the naked power grab by our current commander-in-cheif hasn't been quite as obnoxious as what the country endured during the Civil War or during WW2. So I guess we have made some progress. Of course the threat today is miniscule compared to those periods, so its hard to say for certain if we have moved forward or not.

    What did you find obnoxious about WWII outside of the fact that Japan wanted a war with the US and they got it, and the fact that a savage "Madman" in Europe wanted to take the world over so we rid the world of him.

    They started it, we ended it, if we had crawled on our belly's to them you wouldn't have the freedom you have today, it would be a far different world.

    Where in the Constitution does it permit jailing people simply due to their heritage? Just how many days was the length of the war shortened by the internment of senior citizens and little kids?
