Is America Above the Law?

Are we above the law?

Is a president in this great nation not accountable for breaking the law?

How about lawyers who knowingly try to rewrite law to cover their butts so they can torture without being prosecuted?

To be honest with you, I just don’t get it.

Several of my family members are “conservatives, republicans” and they tell me the reason is that the Republican party better represents their Christian beliefs.

I don’t get that either.  How can it be that a party who lies about WMD, Weapons of Mass Destruction to get us to go invade another country be “Christian”?

How bout a president who actively participates in lawyers making little opinions about the law to make room for torture?

How bout using the Patriot Act to spy on American citizens?

I don’t get it.

I really don’t get it.

There is just so much wrong with this type of thinking.  It goes against the grain of what I understand being a Christian.

Seems to me that Christian folks want to force their beliefs on others, leaving them no room for free choice.

There doesn’t seem to be much room for tolerance either.  What about freedom and protection under the law?

It seems that freedom and protection only apply to those who think and believe the same way.  If you are not in the “right” group.. you are liberal, socialist, etc and have forfeited your rights as not only an American, but as a Human Being.

Again, I just don’t understand.

The other day someone wrote that when the left admits that abortion is murder they would admit that America used torture.

What does one thing have to do with the other?

This type of thinking is confusing to me.  Wrong is wrong. Period.  America Tortured other Human Beings.

How does that make it right?  I know we were afraid.  I know we were not thinking clearly.

Let’s take actions now to correct the wrong choices this Nation’s Leaders made..

Disbar and impeach the lawyers.

Bring charges against the administration who conspired to torture and gave orders to torture.

It’s not complicated.  This nation made a mistake.

Let’s face it with honesty, bravery and courage.  Then we can once again be respected by our own citizens and other nations, rather than hanging our heads in shame or making more excuses.

Is America Coming Back to Sanity???

Hip Hip Hurray!!

Finally, after almost 8 years of insanity our Supreme court is coming to grips with what this nation stands for.

It decided… again.. that all prisoners held in the States or out.. do have rights.

Wow.. it’s hard for me to even consider that anyone in this nation, especially our president would think otherwise.

What makes our nation the envy of others? Why do people from all over the world want to move here?

Our freedom, our Constitution. Without the Constitution we are no different than any other nation in world.

The truth about this current President, George W. Bush is coming to light. Motions are being made to impeach him, too late though for all the damage he has done in our country.

I love this country and have been ashamed of many things that have happened over the last several years. Whenever we use terror to fight terrorist.. how are we then any different?

When we deny people a right to legal counsel and jail them for years without any rights whatsoever and use torture against them, please tell me how these acts differ from the ones we say we are fighting.

I am glad our Supreme Court made this decision. I am saddened that once again the Republicans including our president are upset about this decision. Are we going to turn from insanity back to the core of what our nation has always stood for?

I hear a lot of conservatives talking about how the morals and ethics in this nation are being eroded by abortion, gay rights, TV, books and movies.. yet none of the talk about denying other human beings protection from torture while in American custody.

How can this be?

Perhaps when a nation decides to believe the lies told by government to invade another country for oil they will fall for anything. I hope not. I hope we are waking up to what has been going on. We were told too many lies and lost too many freedoms to let it go on.

Hip hip Hurray Supreme Court of the United States of American for understanding that when it is legal to deny the constitutional rights to even one person, they have no value for anyone, American citizen or not.

Let’s bring this nation back to sanity and shine truth and light on lies, fear and those who promote it.
