A question...

A question for anyone old enough to remember the Nixon Administration and the swell time those people put the country through.

Do you think Nixon et al would have carried presidential power to the extremes the people in power today want to carry it?

If they’d had a Republican congress like the one on the hill now, would they have had us debating what constitutes torture and whether or not habeas corpus pertains to CIA prisoners/military detainees?

Sure. Why not? Weren't they the same fine folks that brought us the secret bombing of Cambodia - pre-emptive war 101? Didn't they break into the Watergate and Daniel Elsbergs' Doctor's office? Where do you think Karl Rove learned his ethics? Win at all cost.
