The worst problem to solve towards a new democracy:
Removing the leaders who have lied to the public.
You can not move forward with any sense of renewed hope or enthusiasm with a group of leaders who have predominantly voted on legislation that tosses the entire US Constitution into the Toilet. Each Congressional Rep that voted for the NDAA Bill and Bill 1867 has violated their own oath, which is to uphold the US Constitution.
Each of these appointed leaders -- have, in essence AND fact, committed treason against their countrymen and their country.
How can you expect to move forward and solve any issues of "democracy" without holding these people accountable for voting on legislation that is unlawful and flies in the very face of the oath that they took on the day that they took office?
As far as the issue of leading our country into a false wars with Iraq, holding prisoners without a trial by jury, and administering torture which is ruled illegal by the United Nations... the people who issued these executive orders are indeed "War Criminals" and are endangering our country's reputation-- as well as creating the USA to be a target of other nations who regard these acts to be War Crimes.
People who are guilty of crimes within our government, should be indicted and handled with the same respect and justice that we administered to Saddam Hussain, Bin Laden, etc...
Why should criminals be issued a free hall pass? They should be prosecuted and executed with the same level of decency and honor that we handled AND executed other world leaders.
You may question my response as being "Extreme"...
However, look at the repercussions of this.
The United States felt completely justified to enter Iraq and to conduct a military occupation in that country based on the false premise of "Weapons of Mass Destruction". We have held prisoners without due process and without a trial by jury. We have tortured these prisoners.
There were women in the prisons which have been gang raped and sodomized in the name of the Bush Administration's "Torture Policies". Pictures are circulating right now in China and Russia of this atrocity. This could indeed pull the United States into a WWIII.
This is a very serious offense.
The criminals behind this should be prosecuted and dealt fair punishment. In my opinion... this is ever bit as bad (if not worse) than the men who's actions caused them to be convicted and hung in the Nuremberg Trials at the end of WWII.
The Styx song "Renegade" comes to mind.
