Yes, the zeal with which the American people are willing to give up their rights, in order to protect themselves from the bogeymen of their own creation, is alarming. All in the name of blind patriotism.
This bill is frightening in its vagueness - it could be applied to practically any participant in any type of rally, or act. Mandating a sentence of 25 years to life for blocking a street, in protest of an unjust war, is so draconian that I can't even comprehend it.
I agree with you, the bill won't pass, but the mere fact that it is going to be discussed and voted on in my State Assembly, is truly apalling.
