In this 1997 “electronic journal”:http://usinfo.state.gov/journals/itgic/1097/ijge/gj-7.htm entry, Senator John Aschroft (R- Missouri) does a stand-up job in chastising the Clinton-era police-state policy on Internet encryption and electronic intrusion. In the truly respectable fashion of a core-beliefs Republican, Senator Ashcroft draws attention to the fact that ??the Clinton administration would like the Federal government to have the capability to read any international or domestic computer communications?? and expresses his concern for Americans’ privacy.

Way to speak up, Senator! I hope you always get re-elected!

Didn’t he lose to some dead dude?

Seriously, though, I’d like to thank you for realizing that the true fashion of a core-beliefs Republican is to fear and doubt anything remotely resembling the Patriot Act and especially the VICTORY act. It’s been fun for me to watch the folks over at NRO and Reason flop and twitch between loving GWB for the war on terror abroad, and cursing him for increasing domestic spending, taxes, and removing civil liberties.
