    All throughout I was wondering wtf Habeus Corpus meant...Wiki is my friend.

    Yeah so, Republicans are against releasing illegally detained people...wow. Doesn't sound much like a democracy.

    To have that level of arrogance(even I won't make such a claim about Democrats), I wouldn't trust this paper to wipe my butt.

    ^ It's an opinion piece, why would you even bother to be offended by it?

    I do admit that this article is even less well written than typical opinion pieces, though none of them are exactly very persuasive (in my opinion at least), the people who write these things all seem to be assholes, or at the very least, they manage to present themselves as such very effectively.

    Not, offended by jakko either, honestly, the Democrats aren't really responding either, and to me I see it as a major problem on both sides. Not just a Democrat or a Republican problem but as a National problem and that no one is really addressing this. I think Ron Paul maybe but I'm not that sure, I know he's the only person who voted against the act that took away Habeas Corpus.

    So, it was more for a public interest than to start a debate. I felt that the members need to know about Habeas Corpus and it not really being there right now, because as you saw Viraten didn't even know it existed.

    I know about because I have the specialprivilege to live in the same state a s the former Governor Earl Long. So, I know about Habeas Corpus.

    But many Republicans do though, even if you don't.

    But yeah, I hate biased articles as well.

    The real problem here is the fact that one of the most fundamental legal principles actually has been suspeded at all. Which, I might add, is blatantly unconstitutional.

    It's things like this that make it obvious that respect for the constitution, and indeed the entire concept of the Rule of Law, is quite alien to Bush and his posse. It also shows shameful servility from Congress. If the executive is pissing all over the constitution and overstepping its mandate it's the duty of the legislature to stop them, not just sit and watch.

    My uncle (a history professor) tells me that America is not a democracy, its a democratic republic... Eh.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Thank Saizou, for actually understand the point I wanted to bring across. It's the fact that a basic right that all people should have has been taken away. This is not about Republicans or Democrats, we can just assume that the parties don't give a shit about us. As a people we should be appalled and we need to demand our rights back. Congress had no right to do what they have done, and it is something that needs to be ratified what is going on I irresponsible and illegal, and we are just letting it happen. We are the people of this country and we have the power to change what has happened, as Americans it is our duty to fight for our rights, and as Americans we cannot allow the government to take them away.

    My point is if this is not something that either party is willing to recognize we the people have to make them recognize that we will not allow them to continue to do what they are doing. We cannot sit by and let our basic rights get stripped away from us.

    @sd- that's pretty true... we are democratic republic and not a democracy... but democracy is just really popular to say.
