The so-called USA Patriot Act, a first step on the road to totalitarianism, is meeting some long awaited questions. It seems that the Bu$hco Republicans do not want to answer any questions, another sign of totalitarianism. With unsupported claims of "endangering American lives," the House Judiciary Committee chairman stomps out of the room in a fit of pique. Power does not like accountability. Beware totalitarianism.
