Another right to be stripped away.

The problem: 40percent of death sentences are overturned in Federal Court. The solution: Eliminate apeals to Federal Court. You read it right. Republicans in Congress have launched a new effort to speed up executions by limiting the ability of those sentenced to death to appeal to federal courts. They've called it the "Streamlined Procedures Act of 2005," and it's been introduced into the House of Representatives today. The idea is that it would limit the ability of defendants facing the death sentence to have their cases reviewed by federal courts in what are known as habeas corpus appeals.
Take a moment and examine the parallels between what's going on in the B*sh/Republican-run country right now versus what happened in Germany prior to WWII.
