    Default Al Gore gives Bush a bitchslap smackdown!

    Transcript of Gore's speech:

    http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Text_o...eech_0116.html

    Oh..it's so good.. i'm drooling.. mmmmm...

    an excerpt:

    Yet, just one month ago, Americans awoke to the shocking news that in spite of this long settled law, the Executive Branch has been secretly spying on large numbers of Americans for the last four years and eavesdropping on "large volumes of telephone calls, e-mail messages, and other Internet traffic inside the United States." The New York Times reported that the President decided to launch this massive eavesdropping program "without search warrants or any new laws that would permit such domestic intelligence collection."

    During the period when this eavesdropping was still secret, the President went out of his way to reassure the American people on more than one occasion that, of course, judicial permission is required for any government spying on American citizens and that, of course, these constitutional safeguards were still in place.

    But surprisingly, the President's soothing statements turned out to be false. Moreover, as soon as this massive domestic spying program was uncovered by the press, the President not only confirmed that the story was true, but also declared that he has no intention of bringing these wholesale invasions of privacy to an end.

    At present, we still have much to learn about the NSA's domestic surveillance. What we do know about this pervasive wiretapping virtually compels the conclusion that the President of the United States has been breaking the law repeatedly and persistently.

    A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government. Our Founding Fathers were adamant that they had established a government of laws and not men. Indeed, they recognized that the structure of government they had enshrined in our Constitution - our system of checks and balances - was designed with a central purpose of ensuring that it would govern through the rule of law. As John Adams said: "The executive shall never exercise the legislative and judicial powers, or either of them, to the end that it may be a government of laws and not of men."

    An executive who arrogates to himself the power to ignore the legitimate legislative directives of the Congress or to act free of the check of the judiciary becomes the central threat that the Founders sought to nullify in the Constitution - an all-powerful executive too reminiscent of the King from whom they had broken free. In the words of James Madison, "the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny."
    BOOYAH!

    Additional Comment:
    oh mm, yummy.. let me lick the tears from your face, Bush.. mmm your tears are to yummy and sweet! Oh the tears of unfathomable sadness! mmm!!

    For example, the President has also declared that he has a heretofore unrecognized inherent power to seize and imprison any American citizen that he alone determines to be a threat to our nation, and that, notwithstanding his American citizenship, the person imprisoned has no right to talk with a lawyer-even to argue that the President or his appointees have made a mistake and imprisoned the wrong person.

    The President claims that he can imprison American citizens indefinitely for the rest of their lives without an arrest warrant, without notifying them about what charges have been filed against them, and without informing their families that they have been imprisoned.

    At the same time, the Executive Branch has claimed a previously unrecognized authority to mistreat prisoners in its custody in ways that plainly constitute torture in a pattern that has now been documented in U.S. facilities located in several countries around the world.
    Additional Comment:
    *drools and slobbers*.. finally, someone in power saying what everybody but a Bushie feels:

    One of the other ways the Administration has tried to control the flow of information is by consistently resorting to the language and politics of fear in order to short-circuit the debate and drive its agenda forward without regard to the evidence or the public interest. As President Eisenhower said, "Any who act as if freedom's defenses are to be found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America."

    Fear drives out reason. Fear suppresses the politics of discourse and opens the door to the politics of destruction. Justice Brandeis once wrote: "Men feared witches and burnt women."
    Additional Comment:
    The typical RNC response, basically saying that wiretaps without warrants is somehow legal, and that by doing away with civil liberties we can protect them:

    ""This is authority the president does have," Mehlman said. "It's authority that is consistent with protecting our Constitution and our civil liberties, and it's an authority that is critical to learning the lessons of 9/11."
    Is it me, or is the RNC response just doublethink? War is peace, freedom is slavery, getting rid of civil liberties protects them, grabbing power beyond the constitution is how we protect it...

    Doubleplus good.

    I think the RNC is just more unintelligent with trying to voer up Bush's bases with robotic responses. THe way they (RNC) answer questions, reminds me of a bored telemarketer trying to sell something over the phone.

    Anyway congrats on Gore for putting Bush out. It's obvious that he (Gore) is the true president of the US, and he'll be damned if he's gonna let Bush flirt with the citizen's privacy

    The sad thing is, since all 3 major networks are so far up Bush's ass they can smell his morning breath, not ONE of them carried it.

    Liberal media my fucking ass.
