this whole creepy domestic spying thing

Just had someone email me with kind of a creepy question re: the President's hard line on not disclosing anything about any aspect of the current domestic spying effort -- are any of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's conversations being monitored? What Karl Rove and the other West Wing political power brokers are deftly managing to do at this stage is to paint as terrorist-friendly anyone who questions the legality of the Administration's current domestic spying efforts. I am all for "going after terrorists," and "I love my country, " but I really wonder how many Tennesseans in principle believe that any President should be able to do whatever he/she wants, whenever he/she wants, to whomever he/she wants without any checks or balance from the courts, Congress or the public.

I sent this Letter to the Editor, and it was published this week:

I don't care what President Bush or any Executive representative says, what he did and is doing is illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional. Besides that, Mr. Bush admitted his crime on television. If this domestic spying is allowed to continue, we can all say goodbye to our democratic republic. Civil liberties in this country have been won through the blood, sweat, and tears of the military, journalists, abolitionists, labor union activists, civil rights activists, and just plain citizens. I for one will not "go gently into the night" on this issue. Domestic spying must be on the front page in each issue of our print media, on television and radio media must report on this every hour; moreover, Congress has to investigate this crime. If Mr. Clinton can be impeached for lying about a dalliance with a consenting adult, then Mr. Bush must be investigated and if necessary impeached for violating our laws and Constitution. We Americans did not surrender our rights during the American Revolution, World War I, or World War II. I believe those times were much more dangerous than this so called War on Terror. If we allow our civil rights to be abused and usurped now, we don't deserve them. A healthy distrust of government is a good thing, and a really healthy distrust of Mr. Bush and his Executive representatives is an absolute necessity.

With each outrageous act and subsequent smear attack against anyone who calls them on it, George "Lord of the Flies" Bush and his savages lose the support of a few more citizens.
