Dems Vote To Restore Habeas Corpus

Well, it's about time! Habeas Corpus goes to the essence of who we are as a people and is fundamental to the organizing principles that our Founders established as the working blueprint for America.

It speaks to our identity as a people and sustains and renews our national soul. It is the essential light and beacon that leads us out of darkness and into the light of truth and freedom.

And, most importantly, it forms the basis for all of the other rights and privileges that too many Americans have foolishly taken for granted. For the truth is, without Habeas Corpus, we have nothing but a set of nice sounding words that lack the force to produce and sustain their promises.

All who oppose reinstating Habeas Corpus should be publicly condemned in the most public and embarrassing manner legally possible. It is unconscionable that a congressman or woman, who has taken the oath to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution of the United States of America, would want to suspend or nullify Habeas Corpus. They should be literally tossed out on the street and told to "Get lost. We don't need your kind here.".
