Another example of why I just can't understand why anyone in their right mind would vote for today's Republican Party.

Good lord. They want to be able to arrest you without any judicial review. I guess that's not even really news any more. What should be news is that these bastards are still in office, and it's not a foregone conclusion that their party won't win next election, despite saying crap like the radical statements quoted in the linked story. This makes me mad and really does scare me because there's nothing checking the Executive branch except for a slim majority of Democrats... who are still just politicians, so there's no guarantee they can't be turned toward supporting an authoritarian dictatorship if the price is right.

We are so close to that state, people. Don't get passive now just because you think the Dems will save us.

No doubt. I was thinking about this last night and realized that some of the things that I taught in my modern US History class when I was still teaching in '98 (stuff about the Manhattan Project, etc) would get me a visit from the FBI now, and perhaps arrested in a few years if things continue. Of course, it doesn't help that I've been reading about the desaparecidos of latin american governments we supported in the '70s and '80s...
