43. This rebellion has been a Democratic issue for six years.
Edited on Thu Nov-25-10 10:48 PM by sabrina 1
Were you on Bush's side during all those years when the ACLU and the Civil Liberties Union and every Democrat who knew about the encroaching totalitarianism under the guise of 'security' was fighting, successfully, to keep these abusive tactics based on fear, these grotesque machines and
'enhance pat-downs' out of our lives? Did you know they tried these 'enhanced patdowns' in 2004 and had to abandon them because of outrage from the left? When did we switch sides again?

This truly is amazing to see. The amnesia about the fight against Bush. Suddenly people are being manipulated into forgetting how hard people have fought to protect our Constitutional rights against Big Business, because that is and always was the reason for these machines. We KNEW that back then. Were you supportive of Chertoff and Giuliani turning our fears into profits by pushing these abuses of Constitutional rights?

The fact that some on the right are now realizing that their support for everything Bush did, has resulted in Democrats being able to use those powers against them, has little to do with the issue itself which was and always has been a Liberal issue. When did we decide that Bush was right after all? Can someone explain that to me please? Is it a case of IOKIAD now? How sad to see people falling for this. How sad for all those who fought so hard for everyone's rights.

I have not changed my position in six years on this issue. And I was among a majority of Democrats who agreed. Now suddenly we are all 'rightwing trolls'? This is bullshit. This is all about money. I wondered why all of a sudden Democrats were so silent. Now I know it wasn't just because of the holidays. They were waiting to find out whose side they are on and as always, they have come down on the side of the wealthy Corps, the Chertoffs, Giulianis of the world. It is disgusting to watch.
