Lest you think we forget, Congress, Diane Feinstein claimed (as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle) that "we specifically discussed a system of checks and balances" in the National Security Letters portion of the Patriot Act. Now really, Ms Crocodile Tears, are you telling us that gag orders, FBI self-certification of good faith-based behavior, and side-stepping the judiciary's role in serving warrants to assure that no power is being abused.....is a system of checks and balances? If undermining the role of the judiciary and gag orders are considered a"system of checks and balances" which you "specifically discussed", then Ms Crocodile Tears, tell us what you would consider to be lacking in such a system? What else, Ms Crocodile Tears, did you "Specifically discuss" ?

Carrying the torch of liberty internationally, you undermine freedom right here at home. You wage wars of pure aggression for self-gain while caring not one iota who perishes for wrongful causes. This is TREASON, folks, which carries the death penalty.

Congress, if you refuse to live up to your oath to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution, then We the People will do the job. Because, repeat: WE are the FIRST branch of government.

WHO Pays the taxes?
WHO keeps this  economy floating? The have-mores or the greater masses of the Have-Nots?
WHO is the Constitution drafted to protect?
Is this a Government Of the People, By the People and For the People, or does the U.S. Constitution specifically say that it is a Government Of the Corporations, By the Corporations or FOr the Corporations?

WHO taught you, Congress, that the Constitution says that this is a government of, by and for the corporations? WHO taught you that gag orders are a system of checks and balances? WHERE did you receive your legal education?

Congress, must the system of checks and balances come from overseas?
Are you, yourselves, immune from perishing in WW III if we strike Iran? Can money and power buy you immortality?
Are you, yourselves, and are your loved ones, immune from perishing due to global warming?
Are you, yourselves, quite aware that as our soldiers die for lies, YOU are responsible for their deaths as you fund the wars against all the greater American will?
Must we jail you to stop you, or will your own conscience stop you?
Is it normal psychology to not care whether or not people die based on lies?Is it responsible and caring (or even normal) to consider your own self-gain at the cost of an entire nation of people and of human life?

We demand public, straight-edged and upfront answers to every single one of these questions, Congress.
