By Al Gore
Published Sept. 7, 2004 6:00 p.m.
"What would Benjamin Franklin think of President Bush’s assertion that he has the inherent power…to launch an invasion?" The U.S. is now in a permanent state of war, says Al Gore, former vice-president of the United States. Read his biting assessment of the Bush administration's trespass of our trust and our liberty.

About Al Gore | Former Vice President Al Gore's political career began when he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 where he served eight years representing the then 4th District of Tennessee. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984 and was re-elected in 1990, becoming the first candidate in modern history — Republican or Democratic — to win all 95 of Tennessee's counties. Al Gore was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993. During the administration, Al Gore was a central member of President Clinton's economic team — helping to design the program that led to the strong US economy, casting the tie-breaking Senate vote for the plan in 1993, helping to pass the first balanced budget in 30 years.
