Manning to be sentenced today. What a travesty, that "True" information is seen as espionage. If he is sentenced to one day in jail, democracy as we know it will be done. In its place will be a pervasive fear that reporting the truth about the government will be punishable by prison. The government is now effectively separating itself from the people. We are called by the Constitution to overthrow any such government that does that. "We" are the government. When it no longer represents out best interests, we are called to redo it. Wherever they take Manning, that is where we should go. And we should stay until it is clear to the government that what they have just done is wrong, and we will no longer stand for it. One has to draw the line somewhere. When the truth can no longer be spoken, that's where the line should be drawn.
