Al Gore speaks!

Al Gore spoke in Washington on Martin Luther King day on the present crisis with the President and the Executive Branch. The speech has many minor flaws (too much worship of Lincoln for my taste), but overall it was a great one. Here's an excerpt:

We have a duty as Americans to defend our citizens' right not only to life but also to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is therefore vital in our current circumstances that immediate steps be taken to safeguard our Constitution against the present danger posed by the intrusive overreaching on the part of the Executive Branch and the President's apparent belief that he need not live under the rule of law.

I endorse the words of (former Republican U.S. Representative) Bob Barr, when he said, "The President has dared the American people to do something about it. For the sake of the Constitution, I hope they will."

You can read the entire speech at http://news.yahoo.com/s/thenation/20060117/cm_thenation/150069;_ylt=A86.I0WWlsxDYe8AChn9wxIF;_ylu=X3oDMTBjMHVqMTQ4BHNlYwN5bnN1YmNhdA.

William Anderson criticizes the speech at http://blog.lewrockwell.com/lewrw/archives/009747.html. Anderson's criticisms are mostly valid, but there is a time and place for everything, and now is the time for everyone who is opposed to the shredding of the U. S. Constitution to come together and work together. There will be another time to criticize Gore and the Clinton-Gore administration. Right now Gore is on the side of liberty and the Constitution that protects our liberties here in the U. S. Let's keep the main thing the main thing. At least until the present danger has passed.
