Sensible (middle of the road) American opinions wanted...

Now I realize that the political left can spin things just like the political right. But would someone (preferably a sensible, sober middle of the road American citizen) please enlighten me as to why I shouldn't be worried and shaking my head after reading this ?

Is the Bush government really taking the US down this road with no significant opposition? As a Canadian, you might dismiss me as a socialist neophyte, but I can't help but think that there should be a little more vocal consternation about the things going on in your country's governance.

Can someone point me to a right leaning spin on this bill? I have tried for the life of me to put myself in a Bush supporter's shoes when reading about this legislation but I just can't make it sound palatable in any light. Am I missing something?

I happen to agree with you - it makes no sense to me. You've seen the comments on my blog about it, though...
