So the new, updated litany of "Low points in American Democracy" reads as:
- Dred Scott: Supreme Court held that blacks are property and not citizens of the United States.
- Alien and Sedition Act: Made it illegal to criticize the president.
- Plessy v Ferguson: Supreme Court institutionalized racial segregation.
- Japanese Internment camps: Imprisoned 100,000 innocent Japanese-Americans.
- McCain Torture Act of 2006: Authorizes torture and rescinds Habeus Corpus as US policy.
Ave atque vale.
