The USA is a dictatorship, thank the Bush Crime Family

They finally legalized torture. Here's what you get with the latest "happy meal" courtesty of the Republican congress and the Bush Crime Family:

HR 6166 and S 3930 will do the following:
  • revoke habeas corpus
  • create a secret committee appointed by Bush and Rumsfeld that has the power to declare any person - even a US citizen - to be an enemy, instantly depriving them of their legal rights. There will be no appeal allowed.
  • allow police to search through your home without a search warrant
  • end protection of prisoners of war under the Geneva Conventions
  • give George W. Bush amnesty for any war crimes he has committed
  • allow for people to be put on trial in front of a kangaroo court military tribunal, even if they aren’t in any military, and have not engaged in military attacks against the USA
  • allow the government to convict people of crimes on the basis of secret evidence that the accused never sees
  • make it legal for the government to use testimony extracted through torture
  • end the legal right to be protected from forced self-incrimination
  • allow the government to imprison people without telling them what crimes they are being charged with
  • remove the right to cross-examine witnesses
  • allow for the records of trials to be kept secret from the American public
  • enable trials to begin even before a thorough investigation of the alleged crime has taken place
  • take away the right to a speedy trial, allowing people to fester behind bars without being charged of any crime

  • Join a local protest this thursday October 5th, let the Bush Crime Family know that you won't take this stripping of our civil liberties lying down.
