Senator Merkley Explains How YOU Could Be Indefinitely Imprisoned With No Trial



Carl Levin, a Senator I used to think highly of, attempts to justify, from 3:41-4:21.

In Canada, we spend six weeks on a federal election campaign every few years, then let whatever twits we've elected carry on till next time. Americans, on the other hand, define yourselves by aggressive scrutiny and skepticism of government.

Alas, DU still doesn't have an emoticon for "shakes head sadly."
