AUDIO: Great Interview by Marianne Barisonek of David Swanson on "War Is A Lie"

David Swanson, author and activist talks about his new book "Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming A More Perfect Union." The host is Marianne Barisonek.

 Swanson talks about how the office of Presidency has acquired more and more power while Congress neglects its duties. He offers ideas on how we the people can rebalance the political structures.

Powers taken by George Bush will become cemented into place during the Obama administration unless Congress takes action. The aberrations of the Bush years will become norms and now is the time to undo the damage.

Many of the abuses committed by the Bush presidency were given legitimacy by the actions of his predecessor, Bill Clinton.
