While America Sleeps, a Dictartoship is Taking Over.

Are You an 'Unlawful Combatant'?- by Justin Raimondo
Are You an 'Unlawful Combatant'?- by Justin Raimondo: "Congress has now granted the president the powers of a dictator. The rest of the story of our slide into absolutism is merely a matter of filling in the details.

Our rulers will naturally continue to pretend that we live in a normal democratic country, that the Constitution still means something, and that nothing essential has really changed – but, of course, everything has changed, as the post-9/11 War Party has relentlessly argued, and we had better get used to it. Because if you very vocally and aggressively refuse to get used to it, they can and perhaps one day will come for you. As an Arab friend of mine puts it when describing the routine operations of Middle Eastern police states, 'You will never see the light.'"
