Now, may we have such a government here in the US? It is an ironical twist that the old colonizer is now being the champion for freedom, and the colony that threw out King George and said "give me liberty, or give me death" is now in the third term of the Bush presidency when it comes to various forms of infringements on liberty.
What "third term" you ask, furrowing your eyebrows ... how about a couple of examples, you say ... sure:
Here is one on Guantanamo:
Stymied by political opposition and focused on competing priorities, the Obama administration has sidelined efforts to close the Guantánamo prison, making it unlikely that President Obama will fulfill his promise to close it before his term ends in 2013.
When the White House acknowledged last year that it would miss Mr. Obama’s initial January 2010 deadline for shutting the prison, it also declared that the detainees would eventually be moved to one in Illinois.Another one, which is a neat comparison of quotes from the speeches by Obama and Bush; ok, that comparison is not exclusively about liberty. So, how about this one?
