Losing Our Rights

When an Amnesty International report applies to your own country, it is hard to find the right words (via Ten Percent):

Powerful governments and armed groups are deliberately fomenting fear to erode human rights and to create an increasingly polarised and dangerous world, said Amnesty International today as it launched ‘Amnesty International Report 2007′, its annual assessment of human rights worldwide.

Secretary General of Amnesty International Irene Khan said,”The politics of fear are fuelling a downward spiral of human rights abuse in which no right is sacrosanct and no person safe.”

This is beyond searing.  There is no doubt we’ve lost a lot in America under George’s reign.  More than that, we have lost our revolutionary spirit.  That sense of bravery FDR instilled.  We need that back if we are ever going to take back our rights.
