If the Congress doesn't use its power of the purse, whether by filibuster or not, to scale back the explosion in military spending, the tax cuts, etc. -- and especially to end the war in Iraq (to say nothing of passing legislation to prevent war in Iran), then we are truly living in an authoritarian state.

Don't hold your breath -- make phone calls every day to your Senators and reps; make them log the calls (they usually do but sometimes squirm out of it); write letters to the editors, etc.

I think war in Iran is coming. At that point, there really does need to be a massive outpouring into the streets that makes 2/15/03 look like the small crowd that was reported. If that doesn't happen, we deserve everything we get. Sooner or later, we the people must act.
