The Killing of Anwar Al Awlaki

I am right by the side of Ron Paul this time: the US government has absolutely no right to kill US citizens here or overseas.

What hurts is the blasphemous attack on the Constitution; the fact that most people feel better that Al Awlaki is dead means nothing if we have to acquiesce in the creeping usurpation of power which started with Cheney and Bush in 2001 and continues through Obama and threatens to lead us to tyranny.
What hurts the most is the transformation of Barak Obama from Hope for a  better future into another form of Bush/Cheney-ism.

Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party are mad at a lot of the same things. Some times I'm with Ron Paul and others I think he's nuts and probably it looks the same from his perspective.

I found the whole incident repugnant in the extreme. And the near-universal reaction to it right there along with the cheering for executions in Texas. But as I've pointed out before, this sort of thing is perfectly in character for Americans. Hell, a people who carried out virtual genocide in populating this country, are capable of killing anybody for any reason or no reason.

I'm afraid that the country - the group - is fully capable of it.
