please think about what Ashcroft is doing to our nation. do you remember the TIPS program, in which he encouraged all Americans to spy upon each other?! Here is what a BOSTON GLOBE editorial had to say about that (reprinted on CommonDreams):
http://www.commondreams.org/views02/0717-01.htm

but more ominously, Ashcroft now seeks to repackage the worst, most opressive and draconian parts of the so-called "Patriot Act II" into the newly named "Victory Act." He seeks the right to capriciously decide who is an "enemy of the state" so they can be dragged off to a concentration camp, without trial, without be indicted with any crime, without any legal representation!!

see more on the victory act:

the Emperor has no clothes, but Ashcroft will try to arrest us all for sedition just for demanding the truth. Stop the lies. Defend Freedom. Protest Ashcroft.
