Ugh... No Respect for the Constitution
If this is true, how on earth do we fight that? How? Obviously there is no respect for Constitutional rights, so why should we believe that any election will truly reflect the will of the people? Why should we believe that Bush and Co. won't find a way to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which states that "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice..."? Some days it is easy to see why there are so many conspiracy theorists.
I am really hoping that this isn't true -- that this holding zone wasn't truly managed by the RNC, that the space was simply paid for by them, but managed by the NYPD. Even then, I'm horrified by the way the protesters were treated. But this puts it over the top for me.
How can anyone think this is justifiable? Can they not put themselves in the other position? Constitutional freedoms protect everyone, not just the people saying what you want to hear. If I can get behind that idea, as passionately as I may feel the other side is wrong, why can't the RNC?
And why is it so scary for the Bush Administration to hear opposition anyway? It's not like they care what people think. Dubya was appointed by God, don't you know, and what higher authority is there? Oh wait... wasn't that called Divine Right? And didn't we break away from England because of it? Maybe Dubya & Co. are as rusty on history as they are on geography.
