Beginning of the end?

Hopefully the end of Bush, not the end of “free” America (or what’s left of a free America).
BoingBoing recently posted on an announced plan from the Bush administration which strives to acrue as much personal information (including family information) as possible on visitors to the U.S., discourage travel to the U.S., and basically make the U.S. as big of a fascist state as possible:

Bush administration wants Europeans’ family details, the right to put armed officials on European planes, and a pre-approval for European visitors

One commenter on the site had this to say:

When i was a young boy from germany, we had this picture in our minds about the US being a free country, a wide and open country, where you could go to lead your life like you want it to.

Whenever someone would have asked that young boy what came into his mind when he thinks of the US, the answer would have been:
freedom, adventure, endless possibilities.

Today this has changed to:
war, surveillance, christian fundamentalism.

Dabya really did his best in flushing your reputation down the drain.

Naomi Wolf, author of the book and article “Fascist America in 10 easy Steps“, who has researched the steps all fascist states take to their all-controlling dictatorships and has exposed the Bush administration’s efforts at each step, stated a few months ago that if the administration enacts this kind of step, followed by a national ID that would be required for all U.S. citizens to be able to travel from state to state, we’ve entered the last stage of fascism.
We’re almost there.
