Something to think about

This is troubling:

... Is it reasonable - is it really a matter of common sense - to assume that leaders who are willing to abuse signing statements, withhold information from Congress, make secret decisions, lie to the American public, use fake evidence to justify a preemptive war, torture prisoners, tap people's phones, open their mail and email, break into their houses, and now simply ignore Congress altogether - leaders with, currently, a 29 percent approval rating - will surely say, come 2008, "The decision rests in the hands of the people. May the votes be fairly counted"?

-- Naomi Wolf
