Hi all,

I've just submitted for validation:

It Can Happen Here by Joe Conason

From the book jacket:
{America's ruling regime]...is authoritarianism. The most obvious symptoms 
can be observed in the regime's style, which features an almost casual 
contempt for democratic and lawful norms; an expanding appetite for 
executive control at the expense of constitutional balances; a reckless 
impulse to corrupt national institutions with partisan ideology; and an ugly 
tendency to smear dissent as disloyalty. The most troubling effects ... 
include the suspension of traditional legal rights for certain citizens; the 
imposition of secrecy and the inhibition of the free flow of information; 
the extension of domestic spying without legal sanction or warrant; the 
promotion of torture and other barbaric practices, in defiance of American 
and international law; and the collusion of government and party with 
corporate interests and religious fundamentalists."

It's been read and cleand up and should be an easy validation.
