Wired News: Big Brother Tries to Muscle ISPs

Wired News: Big Brother Tries to Muscle ISPs: "The Bush administration asked a federal appeals court Friday to restore its ability to compel Internet service providers to turn over information about their customers or subscribers as part of its fight against terrorism.

The legal filing with the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New York comes amid a debate in Congress over renewal of the Patriot Act and whether to expand the FBI's power to seek records without the approval of a judge or grand jury."

In short, Bush wants to be able to compile lists of who reads this blog, or DailyKos, or Atrios. No oversight, no warrants. They just want the ability to spy on any American whenever they see fit. Why is the GOP, traditionally the party of individual freedom, supporting these facsist tactics?
