Anybody care to post them and end the suspense?

The Police State Is Right Here, Right Now
1. Invoking an external and internal threat
2. Establishing secret prisons
3. Developing a paramilitary force
4. Surveiling ordinary citizens
5. Infiltrating citizens' groups
6. Arbitrarily detaining and releasing citizens
7. Targeting key individuals
8. Restricting the press
9. Casting criticism as "espionage" and dissent as "treason"
10. Subverting the rule of law


The quote at the top of the article...(emphasis added by me)

As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air - however slight - lest we become unwilling victims of the darkness. Justice William O. Douglas

Now the only thing Wolf and her backers have to do is produce all the innocent Americans who were jailed or imprisoned, the newspapers shut down, and all the Bush admin critics who were silenced. Because none of that happened.
