Romney & Giuliani support president's authority
to imprision American citizens without charges.
"That is the modern Republican Party. Its base, its ruling factions, simply do not believe in our most basic Constitutional guarantees. For anyone who wants to dispute that, how is it possible to reconcile the above with any claim to the contrary?"

Rudy gets to coddle Bush's left testicle. His poll numbers give him the upper hand, so to speak.

After 9/11 Giuliani wanted to defy the law and remain in office one more year. The guy's a fascist of the first order and should not be allowed into the white house.

Rudy can make his wife a cabinet member and have her cleared, but he can't bring her in to top secret meetings unless she's been cleared, that would be illegal.

And people thought that Nancy Reagan consulting an astrologer was bizarre.

Scratch a republican and that's what you find.

No, no, scratch a neo-con and you find a fascist.
The Republican party historically has a pretty good record of advocating smaller government and reduced spending. Historically.
That the current crop of Republicans in the White House have repudiated that history should not tar all Republicans with the same brush.

Advocating something and implementing it are different things. I'm too young to remember Nixon, but even if the Republicans changed after him that's, what, 20% of the party's life?
The whole "they're not Republicans -- they're Neo-Cons," thing always makes me bristle.

Since all the neo-cons ARE Republican, I do believe the Republican party shares some of the responsibility for them. Especially the rubber-stamp Republican congress.
But all Republicans are not neo-cons, and I think they should get a little credit (not a lot) for that. I'm thinking that once the neo-cons have completely discredited themselves, and been disowned by true conservatives, we'll STILL have a Republican party that's STILL trying to dismantle the Social Security state.
My point is, that to be effective, criticism needs to be aimed correctly. Punish the guilty, not the innocent, in other words.
