Richard Bruce – Could He Become America’s Hitler?

If Bruce became President of the United States, what would become of America? Decide for yourself.

Bruce on the use of torture for the enemy – “The seeds of Abu Ghraib’s rotten fruit were sown by civilians at the highest levels of our government.” As president he would define who the enemy is.

The “Imperial” Bruce – “It is the fresh details of Cheney’s secretive and loyal coterie of officials at work that provides the most telling insight into how he pulls the strings of the federal government.”

Bruce’s Forty-eight Known Noble Lies – 935 false statements were made between October 2001 and September 2003 on at least 532 occasions by representatives of the Bush administration. Bruce only told 48 due to being hidden away in an undisclosed location with his man-sized safe. Has anyone been tracking his lies since the end of his imperial vice-presiency? • Cheney’s Guantanamo LiesCheney ordered CIA to lie to Congress

Spying on all our enemies – “There is no need to worry about our illegal, secret spying on you, because the Leader Himself — “personally” — reviews this and approves of it. And even though there is a law in place enacted almost 30 years ago by your democratically-elected representatives making it a felony for us to do this, and even though the only court to rule on this issue has ruled that we are violating not only your constitutional rights, but also a federal criminal statute, we are still doing it, and we will continue to. Because we want to and because we can.”

The End of Posse Comitatus – And now we find out Bruce argued that the President could use troops against its own citizens.

A life long goal: Bruce’s Desire for an Imperial Presidency – “Cheney bypassed acts of Congress as defense secretary in the first Bush administration. And his office has been the driving force behind the current administration’s hoarding of secrets, its efforts to impose greater political control over career officials, and its defiance of a law requiring the government to obtain warrants when wiretapping Americans. Cheney’s staff has also been behind President Bush’s record number of signing statements asserting his right to disregard laws.”
