Comment On New York Times Article about Obama's Reelection.

If Obama were truly dedicated to democracy he wouldn't have passed a bill that takes away habeus corpus or the right to speedy trial without indefinite detention for American Citizens. He would have closed Guantanamo and would not authorize drones to kill Innocent civilians. He would order the release of the whistle blower Bradley Manning, whose only crime was revealing the truth about ours and other governments' crimes.  As for congress the only way we will ever get any fair legislation out of them, is if we get corporate backed dirty money and lobbyists out of Washington. This is in the face of various states trying to curtail voting rights through strenuous  Id laws. Here in Florida you need a birth certificate just to get a state id and that costs $$. Is this not actually a poll tax as in the days of Jim Crow? All of this is meant to keep the populace from voting  while handing more and more power to the oligarchs. This is why Occupy Wall Street has been happening. When people have nothing left to lose, only then will they fight back.
