From the usually not so politcal Wil Wheaton dot Net.

Lots of people are saying alot of things that shouldn't ever have to be said tonight, and it's nice to know I'm not alone, that not everyone in the world is so cynical that even something as fundamental as the idea that you shouldn't torture people can pass into the void as just another thing those government people are doing that doesn't matter. I've been told I am naive many times this week, for thinking that the US government had enough strength to oppose things like torture. Apparently, they were all right. I think American cynicism is in large part the enabler for things like this happening. Americans think that is probably going to happen anyway, that they can't stop it, so they don't care. WE CAN STOP IT, but only if we actually try. It's far simpler to say you can't and let it go, but it's also wrong. Not only CAN we stop things like this from happening, we must. VOTE, tell your friends, family, coworkers, strangers, to vote. Don't live politely, talk about politics. It's worth it. Some discomfort in the short run must surely be worth it for the freedom we talk so much about in the long run.
From WWdN:

Shame on President Bush. Shame on his Republican allies in congress, and shame on the spineless, cowardly Democrats who did not stand up to them. Shame on them all, and shame on all of us if we do not turn out by the millions in the next election to put men and women into congress who will have the courage to do their constitutional duty, and defend the Republic from all enemies, foreign and domestic
