More commentary on what's becoming of the land of the fee, home of the slave:

Do Nazis deserve more rights than terrorists?



Is America a nation "of laws, not of men," as John Adams promised? Or has it become another synonym for lawless tyranny?

Is "America" a place that obligates its leaders to respect the Constitution? Or is America governed by Richard Nixon's notion that "if the president does it, that means that it is not illegal"?

And perhaps the moment's most disturbing query is the simplest of all: Is America a country where self-reflection is valued? Or are we a country where these critical questions are no longer permitted?


 To be fair, the USA hasn't had much tolerance for dissent for quite some time. Just ask Eugene Debs, Sacco and Vanzetti, and the Haymarket martyrs.
