Bush is doing everything he can do destroy real liberty. And in that regards he is probably more aggressive then your government. Your country seems to suffer more from an aimless drift, but Bush is actively working to create a police state.

He is slowed only by a higher legal barrier that the constitution and laws of this country provide. And even that only goes so far as they are willing to rewrite and even ignore the law when they think they can get away with it.

Both of our countries have been seriously hurt by the lack of a real opposition party. Even now in a majority position in Congress, the Democrats are not going on the offense but instead staging a careful retreat.
