I'm still puzzled at the Democrats that signed off on the Patriot Act the first time through. It was obvious what would happen even back then.

Since the sheeple of America need instant gratification including 'sweeping' measures to keep THEM safe(which is quite selfish actually) no one complained. Nor did anyone want to oppose a law called THE PATRIOT Act. It was named that for reason-to make opposition less likely. Show you how spineless most DemocRATs and RepubliCANTs are.

But with a major CONservative administration in power the sheeple followed their percieved shepard.
