John Cusack (the actor) has been outspoken about politics off and on for the last decade. His articles and comments have painted him as a rather shrill Leftist. However, to his great credit, he’s one of the few Leftists in this country that hasn’t buried his head in the sand to avoid seeing the war that President Obama has waged on civil rights in this country. Now, the Republicans deserve plenty of blame for ignoring the erosion of our civil rights during his eight years in office, but the amount of liberty lost during his two terms pales in comparison to what we’ve weathered in the past three and a half years. All the while Dems are silent. Obama and Holder would never abuse their powers, war is now cool, nobody is dying in Afghanistan and poverty has been eliminated.
Cusack recently posted an interview he did with law professor Jonathan Turley entitled “The Obama Administration’s War on the Constitution”. This is a long article but you must read it. If your attention span doesn’t permit a single sitting, break it up.. But read the damn thing.
Now for all you Republicans out there, I have a final question that I know I’ve asked before. At any point during the campaign, have you ever heard Romney or Ryan say a single critical word about the Imperial nature of this president? Anything about regaining civil rights? I didn’t think so. It’s all about the economy, the economy and the economy.
The current economic depression and the oncoming collapse or no different than flying planes into buildings. Get your attention focused on the catastrophe while they enslave you.
You Republicans had better be damn vigilant the next four years and resist the temptation to breathe a sigh of relief once Obama is gone.
