From Common Dreams via Buzz Flash:

It’s Munich In America. There Will Be No Normandy.; "This is it, folks. This is the scenario our Founders lost sleep over. This is the day they prepared us for." 2/23

"Outside the Philadelphia convention Benjamin Franklin was asked what sort of government he and his colleagues were crafting. His reply? “A republic. If you can keep it.” And that is just the question at issue today. Can we keep it?"

"America may not be a fascist country today, but it’s not for want of trying. I have no question but that through Dick Cheney’s dark heart courses the blood of Mussolini. No wonder the damn thing’s so diseased. And I have no doubt that Karl Rove has only admiration and envy for Joseph Goebbels. Hey, why can’t we do that here? (Hint: We are.)"

"America is not a fascist country (if it was, you wouldn’t be reading this), but pardon me if I don’t defer to Bush defenders and ringside Democrats who consider me hysterical for worrying about the direction in which we’re heading."

It's long, but I think it's important and needs to be read.

It's a good read and well worth the time.

No problem, pal.
I wish there were more people reading it. Everybody really should.
