Minority Report could become reality in Putin's Russia

" MOSCOW, June 11 (Reuters) - Russia's parliament on Friday voted to boost the powers of the successor to the Soviet KGB, allowing it to summon people it believes are about to commit a crime and threaten jail for those who disobey its orders."

In the "Minority Report" the state of freedom in the world had deteriorated to the point that the police would arrest someone just for thinking about a crime, seems the Russians see this as a good Idea. All of this is being done more or less in the name of "safety".

I can't help but wonder how long before some politician in this country will propose a similar law. After all it already seems as if everything is illegal. This is an especially frightening thought seeing as how the Democrats in Washington seem to have more in common with the communists of this world than they do with the traditional values of American freedom.

Make no mistake this law being proposed in Russia comes straight from the Soviet era and I'm sure it will help Putin consolidate his iron grip on power. This is what happens when governments begin to attempt to control everything. This is what is troubling,the current crowd in Washington seems to have an insatiable lust for power.

I hope I'm wrong but I fear it won't be too many years-if that long- before something similar gets proposed over here. Bad thing is nobody will read the bill and it will probably become law.

Well that's my rant for tonight. Remember...demand freedom!!
