The US Senate today fought off an amendment that would sustain the principle of habeus corpus as a foundation of our nation's rule of law. The Republican Party has officially rebranded itself as the Party of Torture.

In five short years, a country that was once a beacon of integrity in the world has sold its soul to the dark side and abrogated its moral responsibility.

How far and how fast we have fallen.
