Wiretaps Are For Blackmail?

-- by Dave Johnson

Thomas brought this to your attention earlier. I just want to make SURE you read it by bringing it up again. Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan Admin. guy, says the reason things are the way they are is that the Bush people are using info gained from their secret wiretaps to blackmail people.

The years of illegal spying have given the Bush administration power over the media and the opposition. Journalists and Democratic politicians don't want to have their adulterous affairs broadcast over television or to see their favorite online porn sites revealed in headlines in the local press with their names attached. Only people willing to risk such disclosures can stand up for the country.

... How long before members of the opposition party, should there be one, find that they cannot return to Washington for important votes, because they have been placed on the no-fly list? What oversight does Congress or a panel of federal judges exercise over the list to make sure there are valid reasons for placing people on the list?

Go read.

This is indeed disturbing, I try so hard to keep a healthy attitude, but the conspiracy theorist in me keeps surfacing.
I have been to many conservative sites, that are not in favor of bush, is blackmailng playing a part in their silence?

What is it going to take to get our country back?
If our "leaders" can't/won't due it in fear of retaliation, what will our choices be?
Rebellion by the masses?

I guess the best way is through the poltical process, who do you vote for?
Really don't want to see an armed rebellion, but I know many folks who will and are prepared for it.

I can see turbulent times ahead.
