Darth Lieberman's Internet "Kill Switch" June 21, 2010

Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman bears a striking physical resemblance to the fictional Senator Palpatine from the Star Wars film series. Palpatine?s mild and unassuming manner concealed bottomless guile and corrupt ambition; he would eventually emerge as the dictatorial ruler of the first galactic empire.

We can rely on the Connecticut Senator to exploit every opportunity to expand state power. He recently proposed a measure that would strip Americans of their U.S. citizenship on the mere accusation of collaborating with terrorists ? rather than doing so after their guilt was established.

? Liberman recently sponsored a measure entitled the ?Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act. That measure would provide the president with a ?kill switch? to disconnect elements of the internet for reasons of national security.

?Right now [in] China, the government can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,? insisted Liberman in defense of his totalitarian measure. That?s an argument only Emperor Palaptine would find persuasive.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
