overview and opinion i have read about the recent news that the justice department fired 8 attorneys for political reasons. we should be asking ourselves- are we going to let this happen? this complete government takeover by the executive branch. the neo cons want nothing less than a 'unitary executive branch' which in my opinion is just a fancy way of saying dictatorship. this phrase dresses it up and makes it appear to the slow witted as if we still have a democratic republic.
