This is the thing about leftists – they have no problem wanting a Police state instrument of domestic informing worthy of Erich Honecker when it comes to creating a kind of thought-crime Ministry of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, but make a sour face when the government wants to protect its’ citizens and friends worldwide.
«Former Vice President Al Gore called for an independent investigation into President Bush's domestic spying program, insisting that the president "repeatedly and insistently" broke the law by eavesdropping on Americans without court approval.What’s plain to see is that Al “I’ve lost it” Gore’s notion was TRULY unconstitutional.
What Al Gore forgot to tell his audience was that he not only supported eavesdropping on Americans without court approval – he also chaired a project designed to execute just that in total secrecy. In short, Al Gore wanted to bug every phone, computer and fax in America.»
Others still think it’s about an even simpler and more typical lefty predeliction: Patrimony.
