12/21/2005: Back to the 'Rule of Law'
Bryan, at Why Now, has this great run down of the concerns from Senator Jay Rockefeller's when *notified* of these surveillance activities outside of FISA by our very own "King Georgie."
And this most cogent of statements:
"...The backers of "King George" claim that the only limits on the power of the President are elections or impeachment. If that is their view, the solution is obvious: Impeach the arrogant son-of-a-bitch..."
What's it gonna take to get rid of this SOB? Again - wouldn't it be so NICE to invoke the "Rule of Law" and use that to impeach this law-breaking imperialist President and his evil empire cohorts? [Plus the federal statute calls for a 5-year prison term and $$ fines for violations of FISA.]
Could we be so LUCKY that this extra-Constitutional Nightmare of an bAdminstration has finally been caught red-handed with its hand filtching from the Dictatorial-Power Cookie Jar (yet once more) and has gone TOO FAR in ignoring U.S. Laws in trumpeting "Presidential Perogatives" to violate Citizen's Rights?
Oh, let's hope for a good ole fashioned investigation and some of that long lost Congressional oversight - followed by a touch of Legalistic oversight as well. Time to hold the law-breakers accountable.
