Making its television debut on one of the darkest days of American
history--Election Day, 2004--Unconstitutional takes a look at the
passage and implementation of the USA PATRIOT Act, a piece of
legislation that none of our duly elected legislators were allowed to
read before they voted on it. To their undying shame, the vast majority
of those legislators, cowed by the bullying of the Bush administration,
voted for it anyway. The result? We have all been stripped of many of
the civil liberties we have long taken for granted. Concentration camps
in Guantanamo (and, undiscussed in this film, elsewhere), American
citizens held uncharged and incommunicado in South Carolina naval brigs
at the behest of the American Imperator, sneak and peek searches...and
now we have four more years for Karl Rove and company to add even more
onerous restrictions on our freedoms. Watch this and weep.
