That call to overthrow the United States of America was not posted by "some Freeper," but by the owner and Founder of Free Republic.Comment Posted By Jack On 19.07.2009 @ 12:04
"Harry is a douche from a predominately Mormon state."
Chuck evidently thinks "predominately" means "6%".

There is no more important aspect of democracy than the minority accepting the will of the majority. The constitution gives the minority certain protections against getting steamrolled by the majority.
This position is only tenable when the majority recognize that the minority has a right to exist.
We'll see if this is the case, but recent precedents don't bode well.
Also, as I'm sure you recognize, the US is a democratic constitutional republic, not a democracy. There is no such thing as 'the will of the majority'. The fact that an individual is elected president does not make them a proxy for the 'will of the people' or any such thing.
I'll recognize whomever is elected as the President of the United States, but any further commitment will be based on their performance and the behavior of their administration.Comment Posted By Jack On 14.10.2008 @ 12:09
he must suffer the consequences of being called all sorts of names by brainless lefty twits and photoshopped into unrecognizability by humorless harridans and harpies.

hmmn... a few points:
1. FISA gives Bush 72 hours to wiretap freely while he gets a wiretap. FISA isn't exactly strict. Of the 15000 times it has been used since it was started, it was denied about 300 times. Do you really think that bush would have had ANY problem getting a warrant to spy on an ACTUAL terrorist?Comment Posted By jack On 25.02.2006 @ 15:05
2. Why would Bush need to circumvent FISA unless he was spying on the 1 in 500 person who would be almost impossible to be or have any link to a threat to the states?
3. this leaves 3 options. The first and most unlikely that the FISA judge is a terrerist luvin ACLU sonabitch who refuses to let george spy on threats to the US, the second, somewhat unlikely, is that Bush is spying on his political enemies, and the third, is that Bush and his admin are too damn lazy and incompetent to get the paperwork done, even if it involves americans civil rights
4. Even if it was being used to safeguard US, (which it probly aint) then who sez it would stop another 9/11 in an admin as incompetent as this one? the words BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO ATTACK INSIDE UNITED STATES spring to mind.
