Because freedom can't protect itself
I have posted on this a few times today. I hope that your effort helps to bring more attention to this.
Where in the World is habeas Corpus?
I checked over at Buzzflash and there wasn't anything on it, so I put that diary up... Buzz it if it you want. Or put up something of your own and I will Buzz it!
OOPS! Broken link... I think?
Where in the World is Habeas Corpus?
The Bush administration is probably as far from traditional conservatism as any in history. From its beginning the Bush administration's policies have flown in the face of conservative tenets -- (1) fiscal conservatism; (2) separation of moral ideology and state, an example of which is separation of church and state (see government investment in faith-based programs, DOJ's new focus on "religious discrimination," new legislation of morality, etc.); (3) hiring based strictly on qualifications (see recent NY Times pieces on how DOJ has been hiring students for its "honors program" based mostly on ideological/religious bent); (4) limited government; (5) free market policies (those of the Bush administration are more like selective corporate welfare); etc. I think we're seeing a real divergence between "conservatives" and "Republicans" -- sometimes I wonder where all the real conservatives went.
