sieg awol

rasbobbo at dkos via talk left points us to awol’s proposal for the “patriot” act. the house version provides in section 605:

"a permanent police force, to be known as the 'the united states secret service uniformed division'" empowered "to make arrests without warrant for any offense against the united states committed in their presence"..."or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the united states if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony"

funny, fdr didn’t need to trash the constitution to defeat hitler. but awol, who still can’t catch osama, now wants his own sicherheitspolizei. bonus historical allusion for all you history fans: when augustus set about creating a monarchy, he kept reassuring romans that he was simply restoring the republic.
