    What we know is that the people in charge will possess the capacity to be tyrants -- to use power oppressively and unjustly -- to a degree that Americans in 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, or 2000 could've scarcely imagined. To an increasing degree, we're counting on having angels in office and making ourselves vulnerable to devils. Bush and Obama have built infrastructure any devil would lust after. Behold the items on an aspiring tyrant's checklist that they've provided their successors:

    A precedent that allows the president to kill citizens in secret without prior judicial or legislative review
    The power to detain prisoners indefinitely without charges or trial
    Ongoing warrantless surveillance on millions of Americans accused of no wrongdoing, converted into a permanent database so that data of innocents spied upon in 2007 can be accessed in 2027
    Using ethnic profiling to choose the targets of secret spying, as the NYPD did with John Brennan's blessing
    Normalizing situations in which the law itself is secret -- and whatever mischief is hiding in those secret interpretations
    The permissibility of droning to death people whose identities are not even known to those doing the killing
    The ability to collect DNA swabs of people who have been arrested even if they haven't been convicted of anything
    A torture program that could be restarted with an executive order
