  •  That reminds me of (none)
    a column I read by Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) on last night.

    Although I don't agree with all of what he says in the column (to say the least), he hit the nail on the head with this excerpt:

    Orwell certainly was right about the use of meaningless words in politics. If we hope to remain free, we must cut through the fog and attach concrete meanings to the words politicians use to deceive us. We must reassert that America is a republic, not a democracy, and remind ourselves that the Constitution places limits on government that no majority can overrule. We must resist any use of the word "freedom" to describe state action.

    It's taking it a bit out of its context in respect to the column itself but this excerpt most assuredly applies here (as well as to much of the crap that gets relabeled "freedom" by ShrubCo).  Thankfully Paul's name isnt attached to this bill (yet).

    Orwell is spinning in his grave
