Alons Enfants de la Patrie ...

The gauntlet has been thrown down. The federal government, the instrumentality of Liberal hopes and dreams under a rule of law, has been highjacked by a group of people with little tolerance for dissent or disagreement. The President and his agencies, in a calculated program of stifling opposition to their view of the world, are creating a Brave New World of domestic spying and, yes, through their domestic propaganda machine attempting to create a regime of thought control.

Yes, these statements seem a bit exaggerated right now in the tranquility of Christmas vacations. They are not exaggerations, however. They are warnings of a trend that promises to envelope the entire society from its tenacious purchase in anti-terrorism.

This article from Capital Hill Blue (a news and opinion outlet that we trust as well as any) on domestic spying is an eye-opener, a clarion call to the barricades.
