Is the experiment in democratic government ending?

Are we close to seeing the end of the United States' EXPERIMENT IN DEMOCRACY?
I recommend a new video and new book that respond to this question: PBS' Frontline program (Oct. 16)"Cheney's Law" on Cheney's successful drive to give the executive branch supreme power. And Naomi Wolf's THE END OF AMERICA, which sets forth 10 ways in history by which dictators have destroyed democracies. These together expose the tyrannous consequences of more than a half century of National Security State, Cold War, illegal interventions, and invasions, secrecy, censorship, repression, increase of executive power, and Congressional relinquishment of oversight. A striking thing about the video is Cheney's and Bush's assumption that the Congress will be unable to oppose their power grab, and the public will not. I urge you all to see and read, purchase and distribute.
