No, absolutely not--any one that would think that is inept and lacking in the reality realms of thought as well.<quoted text>
That's the problem with handing the government a blunt instrument like the PATRIOT Act. You're assuming that the government will always get it right and only employ it against BAD people. That's an awful lot of faith to put in a government that has regularly disregarded its citizens' guaranteed rights.
Personally, I've never witnessed such direct breaches of the Constitution, as seen in some of antics of the past four years.
