Keith Olbermann: ‘Beginning of the end of America’

Keith Olbermann of MSNBC addresses the Military Commissions Act in a special comment: ‘Beginning of the end of America’

And now—our rights and our freedoms in peril—we slowly awaken to learn that we have been afraid of the wrong thing.

Therefore, tonight have we truly become the inheritors of our American legacy.

For, on this first full day that the Military Commissions Act is in force, we now face what our ancestors faced, at other times of exaggerated crisis and melodramatic fear-mongering:

A government more dangerous to our liberty, than is the enemy it claims to protect us from.

If you like Olbermann’s article you may also like his recent A special comment about lying.

The good news, though, is that there’s elections coming up. If you are a U.S. citizen and 18 years of age, you really shouldn’t miss it. If you haven’t done so already, you may still be able to register to vote (at least in some states).

Remember: The right to vote is a privilege that should not be taken for granted.
