Imagine if free speech had a mandate to ethical standards and lying, smearing and slandering everything that breathes for political benefit was against the law.

Why is it okay for responsible people who could potentiallly be in charge of various US affairs to be able to just demonstrably lie and lie and lie with no reprucussions?

Obvious ObamaWelfareCare is working in Kentucky! Yet traditional media barely made a peep about the rank hypocrisy of the fact that OCare is a resounding success in Kentucky while Mitch McC insisted it must be repealed.

It makes my eyes bleed.

One word (to understand the US): Je$u$ .

I’ll quibble with one thing in your essay.

A government in Canada does not get a four year term. It gets up to a five year term. Four years is the traditional date calling a new election but the term can be five years.

And a government can last a lot less if it’s in a minority situation and screws up badly. Ask Joe Clark.

Otherwise your analysis, or so it seems here in Toronto, is spot on.

It’s taken over 200 years for politicians here to figure out ways to completely gut the Constitution without appearing to have done so.

Now that money = speech and corporations = people, the 1st Amendment has been dropped on it’s head. The part about there being no religious test for office has been turned into only followers of the baby Jesus are fit for office.

The well armed militia part of the 2nd Amendment has been ignored for decades, being replace with the NRA version that anyone has the right to own any weapon, including ones used by the armed forces, with no restrictions whatever. This idiocy goes completely unchallenged now.

Then there’s the “Patriot” Act, which has gutted the protections of I don’t even know how many other amendments in the name of “national security”. No politician appears to have any intention for scaling or repealing this horrible piece of fear-mongering legislation.

Personally, if I had a home country like Canada to move back to, I’d get the hell out of this one. What was once an almost sacred document laying out the rights of man with a clarity rarely seen in history has been turned into a noose that’s going to hang us all in time.
