Congress and the President assault liberty again

Congress passed, and the President signed, legislation that expands the powers of the so-called Patriot Act to authorize the indefinite detention -- without trial -- of Americans on American soil.

I am ashamed to say that my own senior senator (Republican Orin Hatch) voted for this monstrosity as did my Representative (Democrat Jim Matheson).

This is what Americans get when people vote for candidates based on party label and race (you know who you are). In fact, Democrat politicians have such a low confidence in Democrat voter judgment and intelligence that they demand that ballots include party labels so that Democrat voters can vote correctly.

We desperately need smarter voters -- voters who understand that government exists to secure our rights -- not to cradle us.
