PATRIOT Act Again... will it never end?
When will it end? I can't believe that the conservative right is calling democrats wimps on security because we don't want our right to privacy taken away. Will it help make the world safer to have unrestricted access to our homes, phone conversations, e-mails, internet-activity. No. Basically any aspect of your life you think is private can be montiored by the government legally under the USA PATRIOT act. What's next, camera's in the bedrooms, bathrooms, and elevators? If the government has some suspicion of wrong doing they should be forced to get a warant from a judge to pry into that persons life, that way there is a check in place to make sure the government is not abusing its rights. Call us wimps, tell us we flip-flop on issues, say whatever you want but do not take our right to privacy away. To anyone that reads this: please post on your blog, post responses on other blogs, or post anywhere to spread the idea that invasion of privacy under the PATRIOT act is not going to make the US safer, and is only going to bring us closer to totalitarian government.
