The Federal Government of the United Stated is a huge, mysterious, powerful, dangerous thing. It is clearly has been capable of astounding extremes of wickedness.
NONE THE LESS, the US government is a remarkably open institution. Most of its mystery lies in the fact that no-one bothers to investigate. Very little wickedness, treason, or subversion is done in open legislation in congress. Very little evil occurs that will outrage a large block of registered voters.
You can use the web to investigate any law that is before congress. Just go to http://thomas.loc.gov/bss/d105query.html
You can also check out any legislators positions on their web sites.
