so much for amerika

so now let's hear the goddamn party of god talk about values and all about how this is a goddam christian nation---motherfuckers---i hope it is their son as prisoner of war on the other side who suffers the consequences, 'cause somebody's son sure as hell will----"military commissions act," my ass---even that retard arlen specter said, "What this bill would do is take our civilization back 900 years," to before the adoption of the writ of habeas corpus in medieval england---and the sniveling democrats won't even try to filibuster---and all because most of the assholes in this country can't even be bothered to pay attention---america's top model, survivor, whatever on the teevee they know about, but their basic rights and civil liberties on the verge of going down the tubes? huh? what? or just silence--but i can't do anything about it, they whine---bullshit---you can become engaged, because if you become engaged, you talk, and if you talk, there begins to be the possibility of influence, at least with those around you---"our generation's version of the alien and sedition acts," the times called it.

The light of our ideals shone dimly in those early dark days [of the Revolutionary War], years from an end to the conflict, years before our improbable triumph and the birth of our democracy. General Washington wasn't that far from where the Continental Congress had met and signed the Declaration of Independence. But it's easy to imagine how far that must have seemed. General Washington announced a decision unique in human history, sending the following order for handling prisoners:

"Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to complain of our Copying the brutal example of the British Army in their Treatment of our unfortunate brethren."

Therefore, George Washington, our commander-in-chief before he was our President, laid down the indelible marker of our nation's values even as we were struggling as a nation – and his courageous act reminds us that America was born out of faith in certain basic principles. In fact, it is these principles that made and still make our country exceptional and allow us to serve as an example. We are not bound together as a nation by bloodlines. We are not bound by ancient history; our nation is a new nation. Above all, we are bound by our values.

not any more, mrs. clinton---
