The latest Republican outrage

As if things weren't bad enough, the Right Wing Republican Authoritarians masquerading as "Conservatives" Have found another way to limit our freedoms.

It is the kind of thing that I remember being held up as evidence that the USSR was a slave state. The fact that no one could move around without permission from the State. I remember being told that we should be proud of the fact that we were a free people and could come and go as we choose.

Well, if BushCo has its way there will be an end to all that untidy, unregulated travel.

This just in from Slashdot,

"The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has proposed a system which will in essence make it mandatory for you to have permission before leaving or entering the country, effectively putting everyone on a no-fly list unless the government says otherwise. Interestingly, the proposal does not seem to cover personal travel, only that on some sort of carrier like an airline or cruise vessel. While this certainly is concerning, it isn't exactly new, as a passport is already required for circumstances covered under the proposal."

The article take you to another article at Friends of Liberty which discusses the implications of the proposal, and offers a link to a PDF file that is of quite a bit of interest.

This is the world that the Republicans are trying to make for you to live in. If you are happy with that then just sit on your hands and it will be here soon.

If you would rather have the world our forefathers (and foremothers) made for us, the one outlined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then
