Just gave one hell of an important speech, explaining how the executive branch is dangerously close to a defacto recission of the constitution and the bill of rights. You can hear it here, under the rather pedestrian title "speech on executive powers." It's a hour long. It says something rather pathetic about those whom I know and love that I can't honestly expect that many of them (fine moral, rational, intelligent, artistic, passionate people) would bother to listen to it. These same people will watch several hours of pointlessly stupid television this week, talking about which boys and girls they find pretty, and finding excuses for how the government of the nation is not their concern. Thus the country perishes. As Gore quoted Lincoln: "We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country."
His full speech should be listened to. Transcript is here.
If you care about your life, your children's lives (whether or not you have any yet) or their children's lives, please take the time to listen to what this man is saying.
