Bush admits he's spying on Americans

Is the telescreen watching you tonight, comrade?

Lot of his supporters are saying "it's legal", that there's provision for this in the PATRIOT Act and even in the Constitution itself believe it or not. Yeah, maybe it is legal... but there was no question of legality either when the Nazis spied on its citizens, seized Jewish businesses and then forced millions to walk toward "the showers".

Even if Bush does not abuse this power (and anyone who believes he's not is a hopeless cause in my estimation) there is always going to be someone else down the line who will. Someone with a lot more wisdom and foresight would have seen where this path is leading us, and not have stepped foot on it to begin with.

But since when have most of our "leaders" ever shown any real wisdom?
