Slouching Toward Facism

Ashcroft says judges threaten national security by questioning Bush decisions

There used to be a time, not long ago, when the radical elements of the GOP railed against increasing federal power, you remember the "Black Helicopter Crowd." Now it seems that the three co-equal branches of government are getting in the way of the new agenda, at least for John Ashcroft. Technically, the only federal court required by the Constitution is the U.S. Supreme Court and we've already seen efforts in the House to strip lower federal courts from hearing issues related to the pledge and gay marriage. Again, our two hundred years of democratic taditions and civil values appear to have no place in the new order.
