Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act is scary stuff

Tennessean

There is a new anti-terrorism bill in Congress, and this one could take our nation to a place it has never been before. The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 passed in the House in October. It contains enough vague and general language to threaten the freedom of every U.S. citizen, yet it was approved, 404-6. The lopsided vote reminded me of two other resolutions that were adopted with overwhelming support. The combined vote on the Tonkin Gulf Resolution that started the Vietnam War was 502-2. The vote to kick the Iraq war in gear was a more contemplative, but still one-sided, 374-156. Most of the complaints about Congress lately have centered on the divisiveness and failure to compromise on most issues. I think near-total agreement should throw up a red flag, too...
