'Quick! Hide your liberties!'

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales made a speech today in which he said he thinks any media that reveal any government secrets should be prosecuted on account of "national security".

Gonzales, over four years ago, used the words "quaint" when discussing about the "war on terror" and how it handled its Geneva Convention's treatment of prisoners.

Gonzales, a year ago speaking on the Constitution, "The Constitution is what the Supreme Court says it is" , implying the Constitution is a "living" document.

And now, he is destroying the freedom of the press. All of this from an Attorney General (he knows the "law" better than anyone!). What disaster is our country headed into?

No Gonzales, the Constitution is not a living document. It is "dead". It's ink on paper. James Madison read the same document as I read now.

I want to reteach you the principles of the Constitution: "Constitution 101", okay Alberto? "We the People" "ordain"ed "and establish"ed this Constitution, and the Constitution formed the federal government. That means the people are over the Constitution, and the Constitution is over the government. Not the other-way around, like you want to believe. The Constitution is the "Supreme Law of the Land"; there is no law higher, including Gonzales' laws referring to national security. And being from the part of the government, the Constitution to you is the Alpha and the Omega.

The First Amendment of the Constitution reads in part, "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom...of the press". That doesn't mean a few laws, and that doesn't mean one law; that means "NO LAW"! Which part of "no law" did you not understand, Gonzales? "No law" means "no law", period, end of story. If Congress passes no law concerning the press, the President couldn't execute a law, and the Attorney General is on the president's cabinet. The Attorney General follows the President, and the President follows the Constitution, including the First Amendment, so it follows that the Attorney General will follow the Constitution. Am I being clear, Alberto Gonzales?

Do you want to arrest me now?
