Now. This is the same government we're dealing with that targets conservatives and pulls underhanded tricks to defeat opponents. And these are the same Republicans (by and large) who support big government.
On a different though remotely related note, the records of government snooping are being erased. Tea Party member Christine O'Donnell's tax records had been illegally publicized against her during her Congressional fight in Delaware (by media - Democrat) but now evidence of that illegal activity has disappeared.
“So far, it appears the department destroys the access records after a short amount of time,” Mr. Grassley said. “That’s puzzling. Unless the IRS has a back-up, and I hope the IRS does, there’s no way to know how and when Delaware state employees accessed Christine O'Donnell’s federal tax records.”Mr. Grassley also noted that if records are routinely destroyed, this also would cast doubt on the state explanations.“If the records were destroyed, it’s also hard for the state to support its statement that its record access occurred only in response to a public report, and not before,” he said.
