Thinking Like a Republican

This is my latest at the Partial Observer, "a brief guide to understanding the Bush supporter." Excerpt:
The Constitution says that the President is Commander-in-Chief of the army, navy, and militia when it is called up. That clearly means that he is the Commander-in-Chief of everything and is allowed to do anything.
For the sake of national security, the President should determine who can be spied on, even without warrants. This power will not be abused to blackmail and silence political opponents of the Administration – although those traitors deserve it.
Freedom of speech and freedom of the press keep the government accountable. But it should be a crime to release classified national security information. Such a policy will not silence or punish all whistle-blowers, only the irresponsible ones. The privilege of classifying documents will not be abused.
