Dems' New Federal Law : "Deceiving Voters" = Federal Crime
"...two Democratic senators, Barack Obama of Illinois and Charles Schumer of New York, are introducing a bill today that would make deceiving or intimidating voters a federal crime with substantial penalties."Considering how often right-wing bloggers are accused (without evidence) of "lying," and considering the possibility that the federal law enforcement apparatus might very well be controlled by the Dems come 2009, a law like this should give all of us pause.

As term passes, congress gains more control from the executive branch of the government, gains more influence over the judicial branch and is expanding its power over the media, internet and private business.
Imagine the day when, as a blogger, you can be arrested for "deceiving voters" by posting something on your blog that a few congressman, or some other activist group,doesn't like...
