Bob: (After being put in Stan's prison camp) You can't do this!
Stan: Uh-huh. The United States Patriot Act says I can.
Stan's behavior throughout the episode is provoked by what some may consider the Republican "holy book," the United States of America's Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is a 1,000 pages which restricts some of the citizens' civil liberties in order to preserve National Security. Several of these restrictions were administered by Stan in this episode, such as random searches and seizures, and apprehension of suspicious subjects, i.e. Stan's neighbors. The Patriot Act is a very controversial document.
