I can't believe this administration's audacity! How can anyone have any doubt that $shrub and his neocons are out to dismantle our democracy, rob us of our civil liberties, and establish a quasi-totalitarian state??? I'm sure you've heard already, but click here for this gem from Homeland Security.

Am I mistaken? Do we not live in the United States of America? The country that Ronald Reagan avowed would not budge one inch to terrorists? The country of which Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, "The only thing to fear is fear itself"? Of which Abraham Lincoln said, "The election is a necessity. We cannot have a free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forgo, or postpone, a national election, it might fairly claim to have already conquered us"?

If the current administration is allowed to perpetrate this fraud, they'll have to worry about terrorist threats alright. But they won't have to worry about Islamic fundamentalist radicals. To quote the Declaration of Independence:
"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ... But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
Yeah, if they mess with the very heart of our democratic institutions, they'll have 'homeland security' issues alright.
