First off, I would like compliment both of you on your signatures.

To answer the OP's question, I would say that it was a really stupid decision. As citizens of this great Republic (not a Democracy), I feel it is our civic duty to "question authority", regardless of the political leanings of that authority. After all, the "authority" works for us, not the other way around. Freedom requires eternal vigilance, and it is up to us to hold our elected officials, and the bureaucrats they control, to the highest possible standards. Otherwise, we doom ourselves to oppression by ideological fanatics.

I would say that this holds true whether one is a Democrat or a Republican. Personally, I am neither, and believe that both parties are hopelessly corrupt at this point.
