From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Totalitarianism watch: Lawmakers approve expansion of FBI anti-terror power
Lee Penn: The measure to expand FBI power was approved on a party-line vote.

"Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, introduced a motion to limit the life of the new law, but it was defeated on a party-line vote."I'm concerned about this," Mr. Durbin said in an interview. "The idea of expanding the powers of government gives everyone pause except the Republican leadership."

Republican idiots .... or worse. They have forgotten that they will not always hold the White House, and the new powers that they so eagerly grant to Caesar now will be used against them in the future. Remember Janet Reno?

Of course, the PATRIOT act would never have passed without Democratic votes, either.

Both parties are using the ancient excuse of tyranny, to gain more power for the Government.
