Transcript: Al Gore
Except of course for our wiretapping rights!
But here we all are in 2008, and I doubt anyone would argue now that election didn't matter. Take it from me, if it had ended differently, we would not be bogged down in Iraq; we would have pursued bin Laden until we captured him. We would not be facing a self-inflicted economic crisis; we would be fighting for middle-income families.We would not be showing contempt for the Constitution; we'd be protecting the rights of every American regardless of race, religion, disability, gender or sexual orientation.
With that new FISA Bill that allowed AT&T, Verizon and a score of other telecoms to break US laws, I wonder what Al Gore is thinking here? Obama, Nancy Pelosi and even Harry Reid allowed the FISA vote that showed contempt for our US Constitution, thus causing these same government officials to have violate their oath of offices , so what Party does Al Gore belong too? Does Gore simply want to pretend that Democrats didn't help Bush violate US law with that FISA Bill? Even now Democrats are still helping Bush violate US Constitutional by doing nothing.
I don't believe that Al Gore would have ever violated US laws but Barack Obama is not Al Gore. Obama has already violated his oath of office when he told that patent lie about the FISA Bill, than proceeded to recieve big buck for his convention in exchange for helping telecom's break US Constitutional laws. Obama tells lies exactly the same way Bush tells lies.
Al Gore believes very strongly in renewable energy as opposed to Barack Obama, who believes in fictional "clean coal" and allowing new coastal oil drilling as well as whatever else will put money in the coffers of DLC Democrats. Obama/Biden are not really any different than Republican lite for President, and Republican has become a word synonymous with criminal. Barack Obama has already shown Americans that violating the US Constitutional law won't be a problem for him, not anymore that it was a problem for Bush. We see how the netroot bloggers are simply going to let Obama lie whenever he wishes to do so, in exactly the same way we saw radical conservatives let Bush violate his oath of office as well.
In order to prevent a government of the people, by the people, for the people from perishing, we needed a strong move for a third Party yesterday.
