Seriously, the GOP passed the Patriot Act and have cost us many freedoms. Obama, of course, will run against Bush, by being Bush. Read some of Tea Party conservative's Gary North on why today's conservatives think it's just the apparent left that is costing us our freedoms. He parses D'Souza movie on Obama and shows where it's irrelevant. Left and right are more irrelevant today than ever.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
