It's the end of our country as we know it, and I feel fine

Really, I feel just fine about the death of the fourth amendment. I didn't post even once about how the collection of all our phone records violated it. The past six years have properly anesthetized me to expect it. So, there's nothing left to do but to hold a carnival!

Yes, a carnival. I am pleased to announce the launch of the Carnival of the Decline of Democracy, a virtual carnival of bloggers chronicling the end of the American experiment. (What's a "blog carnival?")

Here's the official description:
From questionable election results to collecting the phone records of every law-abiding citizen, we have recently witnessed a massive erosion of our civil liberties and freedoms. Some would say it's just a matter of time before elections are cancelled for our own protection.

This "carnival" will link to those blog posts that best chronicle the decline of American democracy. Editions will be posted every other Monday. (Note - Not every link submitted may be used; we will select based on writing quality, factual accuracy, and space available).
I've even chosen a tag line for the carnival:
Blogging till the secret police take us away.

Here are the details that you will need to enter your blog posting in the carnival:

Carnival of the Decline of DemocracyName: Carnival of the Decline of Democracy
