One day in 1863, American blacks woke up to hear that a white Republican President had given them their freedom. Now, their descendants have woken up to hear a black Democratic President has taken theirs away. And everybody else's.
America is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave; that America died 10 years ago today when its rulers decided they could lock up foreigners indefinitely without trial. Now, that privilege has been extended to American citizens as well.
