Round up a posse

July 24, 2002

The Bush Administration is looking to repeal the Possee Comitatus Act, the one that keeps the government from using the military to enforce law within the US.

And it's been obvious and freedom ensuring and clearly enforced for well over 100 years because, well, we aren't Stalinist Russia, and we aren't insane, and most of us are well aware that an overzealous military empowered with such draconian authority is essentially what every sociopathic fist-clenched dictator from Marcos to Hitler used to gain power and maintain control and hack away at the very soul of humanity and pick up their personal dry cleaning on the nation's tab.

Does Dubya have aspirations to be a military dictator?
