Protecting our Liberties

Watch Al Gore on C Span.

This may be history.

Here is the text of the speech.

As I listen to the man who would have been President,

had the Supreme Court not exercised its political will,

I see the soul of this country.

And from this clear articulation of our situation,

we will see the future unfold.

Gore has called on all members of Congress,

of both parties,

to come to the aid of their country,

and restore the constitutional balance away from the unitary executive.

It is time to stand up.

It is time to breathe new life into the American Democracy.

For, it is We the People who must act to preserve the Constitution.

We must disenthrall ourselves

From our TV's and the controlled media of our day.

Gore speaks of the use of Fear,

to deprive of us of our reason.

For Fear drives out reason,

and results in the politics of destruction.

We have the duty as Americans

to defend the rights of all of our Citizens.

"We have a duty as Americans to defend our citizens' right not only to life but also to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is therefore vital in our current circumstances that immediate steps be taken to safeguard our Constitution against the present danger posed by the intrusive overreaching on the part of the Executive Branch and the President's apparent belief that he need not live under the rule of law.

I endorse the words of Bob Barr, when he said, "The President has dared the American people to do something about it. For the sake of the Constitution, I hope they will."

Therefore, immediate steps must be taken.

Gore and former Republican Congressman Barr agree,

that something should be done.

A Special Counsel should be appointed,

to investigate the violations of law by the President.

Gore has a list of points,

for the restoration of our liberty and of our democracy,

and closes with this,

As Dr. King once said,

"Perhaps a new spirit is rising among us.

If it is, let us trace its movements

and pray that our own inner being may be sensitive to its guidance,

for we are deeply in need of a new way

beyond the darkness that seems so close around us."

Now let us see who runs with this.

And who runs it into the ground.

And Duncan has probably done himself in with that remark. At least with me.

This is a terrific speech.

It gives me hope that it could really be the beginning of the unraveling.

Thanks for making it easy to be in the know.
