US federal government committing crimes


By retailspecialist(7)



I read in several onlione news stories that Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled the phone taps or terrorist surveillance program to be an abuse of presidential power and a violation of constitutional rights to free speech and privacy. I am a Canadian citizen, and obviously have no voting privileges in the United States, but I am curious about one thing and would like to know what American's think: The United States impeached your previous President for conducting inappropriate sexual activities while (literally) in office.  This is not an actual crime in the US, however you care to morally judge the events that took place; but the US did not hesitate to try and oust then President Clinton from power.  The American citizens now have a president that has been found to have violated your constitutional rights by a federal judge, and yet you are taking no action.  I would think that this is a more serious offence and am wondering why you are more concerned about who is having sex with whom, than you are about your own personal privacy.

I think that your language of "you are taking no action" and "I...am wondering why you are more concerned about..." are blanket generalizations about US citizens. Many Americans would agree with everything in your post. I am a US citizen and I am exponentially more concerned with the violations of our privacy under Bush than I was regarding anything Bill Clinton did. I would say that most people I know agree as well, and George W Bush's approval ratings are in the toilet. There are several organizations that want to get Bush out of office, just as there are those that want to impeach every president when in office. Impeachment is a difficult thing to accomplish and, as with Bill Clinton, it can turn into a sideshow and slow actual progress by our lawmakers. Show me a petition to get Bush out of office tommorow and I would sign it. More realisticly, we should encourage our congress and other leaders to impose greater checks and balances on the president, that have dwindelled since he declared "war on terror", and appointed himself as the grand dictator and protector or the people from themselves.
