Dear Mr. Reid and Ms. Pelosi

I have four things that I feel would go a very long ways to making an awful lot of people (but especially me) feel good about the results of our votes on last November 7.

  • Reverse our plunge towards fascism.
  • Rescind the Patriot Act.
  • Dump the Military Commissions Act.
  • Restore habeas corpus and the Bill of Rights.

These are the really big ones to start with. Most of the stuff I’ve been hearing about is important (minimum wage, health care reform, etc., the ‘100-hour plan’), but perhaps not so much without that little list up there. Those are crucial.

I really, really want my country back.
