Foundation for the Defense of Some Democratic Values?

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies says they are “dedicated exclusively to promoting pluralism, defending democratic values, and fighting the ideologies that threaten democracy.” It doesn’t say anything about being an organization dedicated to promoting and defending due process before depriving people constitutional rights. That’s good, because it they said that, they’d be hypocrites. I’ll leave it to the readers to decide whether that fundamental principle is among the “democratic values” that this organization claims to defend.

    They didn’t vote for due process!

    So, was the article on National Review online just a practice- rough draft of this one? They are nearly identical line for line.

    Also, since these were published in different weeks, how could the same thing happen “last week” in both?

    Clifford May can’t write a new article over the weekend?

    Another one whose name is only a ruse at best.

    So what is to prevent the FBI/Homeland Security from arbitrarily declaring all civilian owners of military style arms and a copy of the Constitution “suspected” terrorists? This is garbage! Government must never be allowed to deprive citizens of their God-given rights without due process of law. I’ll fight this one!!!

    Markie Marxist sez: “We commies are always proud to be very supportive of a democracy of the people, unless the people aren’t thinking like good communists, then we overrule them. It’s a fair system like that. Heads, we commies win; tails. the people lose. That’s why we like to say, ‘Power to the people!’ We’re big on democracy! So much so, that we even like to call ourselves Democrats!”

    Let’s see… Named on a secret list run by the .gov that once you’re on yocan’t get off of. No “due process”, meerly suspicion by an unknown/un-named gov’t agency… What could possibly go wrong. Time for these two a$$holes to retire.

    Chas: the problem with your analysis is that Clifford May isn’t a Democrat, he’s a Republican. We really need to get rid of these establishment Republicans, who want to reduce the GOP and conservatism to the cheerleading section for whatever war we happen to be in at the moment.

    It does seem that a lot of the Bushies have come out of the closet as gun-grabbers since he left office. I’m no fan of Ron Paul–I don’t like his anti-Israel schtick–but it’s not hard to see how he gains fans, when the “War Party” always seems to have a kneejerk negative reaction to any civil liberties.
