The terrorists have already won

Some results from a USA Today / Gallup poll:

  • 66% of people think all Americans should be forced to carry a national ID card.
  • 46% think Arabs should have to carry a special ID card, even if they are US citizens. (Hell, why not give ’em a red crescent badge or tattoo?)
  • 48% think the police should be able to stop anyone at random and demand their ID.
  • 37% think the government should be free to search the list of books you’ve checked out of the library.

And people wonder how Hitler got elected.
