Patriot Act

So I was thinking the other day, how many people have been caught by the Patriot Act? The answer, as best as I can research, is zero. None, Nada, Zip.

So the Fedgov decides to stomp on my rights to "protect" me, and as a result they were completely unsuccessful. The argument is security vs. freedom, but If I lose the freedom and gain no security I guess I'm doubly screwed.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin

So I'll be e-mailing my Congressman and Senators to let them know just how I feel. Since the FedGov is still around I think I can have some fun at their expense. I would encourage everyone to do the same.

It was never about terrorism. These kind of acts are in place to control the American population as we descend into the next great depression. Our legislators know it's coming that is why they all back these kind of laws. Prepare for the worst.
