In September 2005, VA Information Security employees seized Berg’s office computer because they claimed “government equipment was used inappropriately…during government time for drafting an editorial letter.” No evidence was recovered to support that belief. [...]
Simonson added: “The reference to ‘sedition’ is shocking. Even if Laura had used the office computer it would change nothing. None of her actions -- her criticism of the government, or her appeal for a change in the heads of government -- approach an act of unlawful insurrection. Is this government so jealous of its power, so fearful of dissent, that it needs to threaten people who openly oppose its policies with charges of ‘sedition’?”
The Bush administration supports totalitarianism, and it's that simple. Want to remain free? Don't vote for them. Frankly, if you voted for Bush in 2004, you voted for the closest thing to Hitler we've ever had. Irrational war policy, Stalinesque press manipulation, abuse of military power against citizens (warrantless arrests), and of course, Gestapo-like spying on Americans without warrants or oversight.
It's not really safe at this point to vote for Republicans, period. Certainly not on a national level. They need a severe reminder that the place of the government is in service of the people. We the People.
