A Question to the Candidates: When are you going to restore habeas corpus?
The Campaign Trail of Tears--How about tomorrow? It astounds me that we have it suspended in a period that's hardly as dangerous as WWII. Habeas corpus wasn't suspended then, and the last time was during the American Civil War. If it isn't restored, there are going to be serious problems. Anglo-Americans have enjoyed the right of habeas corpus for over 800 years, the loss-of-which is likely to be jarring. The reaction could be explosive, but I have more faith in Barack Obama restoring habeas corpus then the other two candidates. What's more important than all of this? Impeachment of the current administration, naturally.
