Thinking for yourself is now [soon to become] a crime


Bring on the jack boots and brown shirts. Some more fucking freedoms are being trashed in the US.
When HR 1955 becomes law, it will create a commission tasked with identifying extremist people, groups, and ideas. The commission will hold hearings around the country, taking testimony and compiling a list of dangerous people and beliefs. [...] We are beginning to see who will be the inmates of the detention centers being built in the US by Halliburton under government contract.

Extinguishing Liberty's Light and Independent Views

What was the greatest failure of 2007? President Bush's "surge" in Iraq? The decline in the value of the US dollar? Subprime mortgages? No. The greatest failure of 2007 was the newly sworn in Democratic Congress.

The American people's attempt in November 2006 to rein in a rogue government, which has committed the US to costly military adventures while running roughshod over the US Constitution, failed. Replacing Republicans with Democrats in the House and Senate has made no difference.

The assault on the US Constitution by the Democratic Party is as determined as the assault by the Republicans. On October 23, 2007, the House passed a bill sponsored by California Democratic congresswoman Jane Harman, chairwoman of a Homeland Security subcommittee, that overturns the constitutionally guaranteed rights to free expression, association, and assembly.

The bill passed the House on a vote of 404-6.
In the Senate the bill is sponsored by Maine Republican Susan Collins and apparently faces no meaningful opposition [emphasis in original].

Are you gonna contact your Senator to try to stop this? Just asking.
