Senator Dodd on Habeas Corpus: Be Ye Patriot OR Tory?

For those of you interested in continuing the real American tradition of "rule of law" that is the foundation that this country was built upon, Senator Dodd is re-introducing legislation to restore Habeas Corpus:
On Tuesday, I re-introduced the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007(PDF). The bill will restore Habeas Corpus protections to detainees, bar information acquired through torture from being introduced as evidence in trials, and limit presidential authority to interpret the meaning and application of the Geneva Conventions.

Please take a moment to watch the video and read the text of the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007, sign on as a citizen co-sponsor, and forward the bill to your personal networks. While you and I are acutely aware of the damage President Bush has done to our country's national reputation, too many of our family, friends and neighbors have no idea how far this Administration has gone.



Either you support constitutionally provided freedoms and Democracy, or you would like to go back 230 years to where a leader ruled with the dictatorial power of a King.

Are you a real Patriot, or a red-coated Tory royalist? IMHO, There is no in between on this issue.

I read about "The Ministry of Love" at MLN a while back and also saw the video over at the nutmeg grater more recently... Great Idea.

I was going to try and work the YouTube video in here over the weekend. :)
