This is one of those cases where the mask drops off and it becomes clear that our "two party system" is a fraud. The reality is that it is us against them.

Crooked Congressman William Jefferson of New Orleans got his office raided by the FBI and they found evidence that he had taken bribes. The search was done with a warrant approved by a judge, and that warrant described in detail the exact things they were looking for.

Jefferson is a Democrat, but Republican Speaker of the House Denny Hastert has complained about the raid and insisted that the Executive Branch return the documents gathered in the raid. This same Denny Hastert has said nothing when the same executive branch engaged in wiretapping of American citizens WITHOUT a warrant, as well as random data collection on all of us regarding our phone calls and e-mails.

Groups whose function seems to be legitimate political protest are getting investigated. I disagree with the political leanings of some of these groups but that is not the point. The point is they have the same 4th amendment rights I do. Hastert is not concerned about any of that, only about legitimate searchers with Judicial branch approval, that are performed on Congressmen.

Congress is not above the law. Nor are the people beneath its protection. If Speaker Hastert, William Jefferson, or any of the rest of them have forgotten that then it is time they be sent home. If both parties have forgotten that then it is time for one that has not.
