I saw this headline in the New York Times this morning.

Bush Signs Law to Widen Legal Reach for Wiretapping

I know it is a sign of the times. I don't know if I'm for or against such a measure. On the face of it and considering my political leanings I am firmly against it as it curbs our constitutional freedoms.

But has the wiretapping to date been effective in keeping the 'terrorists' in check? My problem and I'm only speaking for me is that I no longer trust what the politicians tell us are the facts or their interpretation on those facts, especially a government under siege by politicians blowing hot air this way and that way, none of which I truly believe. It makes the government under siege look cold and unapproachable. They are saying we are right, you are wrong, and this is what we will do like it or not.

Woe is me, woe to all of us. I love this country and its freedoms. We need a savior to ride up on a white horse, and be someone who would talk truthspeak, but I think they are in short supply, at least it appears so at the moment.

P.S. Would we even believe the truthspeaker? You can only spread out the fertilizer so often and only so thick and everyone stops listening and believing.

I don't think Ron Paul's the man on the white horse, but he's telling the truth about a lot of things. Mainly he gets ridiculed.
