We "Good Americans"

When indeed, will we cease being "Good Americans," and demand that this
country return to the standards of decency that we have always claimed to
represent as a nation?

Our humanity has been compromised by those who use Gestapo tactics in our
war. The longer we stand idly by while they do so, the more we resemble those
“good Germans” who professed ignorance of their own Gestapo. It’s up to us to
wake up our somnambulant Congress to challenge administration
policy every day. Let the war’s last supporters filibuster all night if they
want to. There is nothing left to lose except whatever remains of our country’s
good name.
