Some tasty morsels from the proposed Victory Act.

Let’s just imagine that we live in a distant future where the American government has been completely subverted by a totalitarian regime. Isn’t it likely that we’d be looking back at a piece of legislation like this as one of the points where it all began?

My vote would go back a little further. There’s a reason that the right to keep and bear arms comes immediately after the right to religous and expressive freedom.

would link low-level drug dealing to terrorism

I spent an evening recently with a close friend who is uses drugs a little more frequently than I do. What frightened me is that even he thinks that drugs should be illegal. He’s a little more liberal than I am so I guess I can see him wanting the state to protect me from myself. What I have more trouble understanding is the GOP’s duplicity in pushing personal responsibility and starting/increasing this insane war on drugs.

even he thinks that drugs should be illegal.

This is one of the recurring differences between liberals and true conservatives (as opposed to the neo-conservatives in the House and White House). I’ve got a bunch of conservative friends who think that we ought to legalize pot for sure, and probably a bunch of the others, but who have never or only once smoked a bowl. We’ve all got doper friends who we know who are much more functional after a weekend with a nicklebag than any of my conservative bubbas are following a weekend with a case of brewskies.

But yeah, the ‘Victory’ act is bad news, much like the Patriot act. Much better, IMO, to go kill the bastards where they live than to have folks in the USA living in fear of both the terrorists and our own government.
