Amerika: The New Fascist State
Passing a law to benefit one individual, not to mention to interfere in a case being adjucated so that one side wins over the other, is a violation of due process and is fundamentally unconstitutional. And you people wonder why I say this nation is creeping into fascism? What's next, a law to protect Tom Delay from being indicted on his shenanigans? Or perhaps one to prevent a lawsuit against an importmant campaign contributor.
Welcome to imperialism - we now have an Imperial Congress to go with our Imperial President. How are we to now trust the courts? Can a person go before the law, hoping for justice, against those who have powerful friends in Congress? Is one's day in court now subject to imperial fiat by the majority party in Congress over the rule of law?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
