Bush's Mafia Whacks the Republic

Bush's Mafia Whacks the Republic
By Robert Parry

Over the past half dozen years, George W. Bush has shifted the United States from its tradition as a Republic with inalienable rights into a new-age authoritarian state run more like the Mafia. Not only does Bush now assert his right to snatch people off the street and jail them without trial, but he reportedly has dispatched assassins around the world to eliminate perceived enemies. Bush also continues to purge honest officials who won't respect his omerta code of silence.
In years to come, historians may look back on U.S. press coverage of George W. Bush’s presidency and wonder why there was not a single front-page story announcing one of the most monumental events of mankind’s modern era – the death of the American Republic and the elimination of the “unalienable rights” pledged to “posterity” by the Founders.

But yet we act appalled to learn that Vladimir Putin has detractors and political dissidents killed.

Nothing but the pot calling the kettle black if you ask me!

Hi Dave - we should be appalled no matter who is doing the killing. We are not Russia - yet.
