Enlighten yourself DUMBSHIT.

The un "Patriot" Act act was passed and the permission to spy was INCLUDED in the ACT.

If the author was so outraged, why did he include in the act?

Why didn't he express this in 2005 when the provisions were se to expire?

NOW he is interpreting his intent?

Just like other teabaggers.

It depends on who the president is.

Tell me again why Cruz and Rubio don't mention the Cuban Adjustment Act in which any Cuban can pay a smuggler to transport them across the Florida Straits and they get to stay for blatantly violating US law?

Because one is asking for asylum from a communist dictator, and the other is crossing our borders illegally to come to a communist dictator.

Of course, he failed, as usual, to address the two-faced teacons in question.

You know Crapola. We have real issues and problems in America. If you take statements or words from others and turn it around it may make you feel better and important, but the problems and issues still exist. You consider the other side your adversaries. Well start studying them. Its like a tale of two cities. You and the rest of the progressives and progressive lights who have spent your lives playing the "government to survive" system knowing every nook and cranny of government and the coveted payouts. And others who are playing the "working to survive" system knowing every nook and cranny of getting up at any time of day to go to any drudgery employment they have to provide for themselves and family. The latter has had their bones picked clean if not part of the working privledged. Although I will live in it to, I will enjoy the Totalitarian Crapola that will ask no questions and deposit a lead round into the skull of anyone who asks them. Even more so, bringing millions of people into camps to give back to the communities as working slaves. Freedom isn't free and we passed that point decades ago as a soft tyranny will go hard soon enough.

Don’t forget the Mariel boat lift i9n 1980 when Cuba dumped its criminals, insane and other “undesirables” on the U.S. This is what gave Mexico the idea to do the same. Before Cuba dumped their “undesirables” on the U.S. most illegals from Mexico came here to work then return home with the money they made. After seeing what Cuba did and with the encouragement of the 1986 amnesty what was a trickle of people coming here to work has turned into a flood of criminals looking for handouts and to steal what they are not given. The difference is that Cuba does not have as many people to dump and they did it over a short period of time unlike Mexico which has been “encouraging” their “undesirables” to sneak into the U.S. for over 30 years.

The original act included the collection of intel only on foreigners. If you have proof otherwise post it.

Just a little research outside the realm of teabagger "talking points" and innuendo and you have proof.

From broad concern felt among Americans from both the September 11 attacks and the 2001 anthrax attacks, Congress rushed to pass legislation to strengthen security controls. On October 23, 2001, Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner introduced H.R. 3162.

The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 is an Act of Congress that was signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001.

Opponents of the law have criticized its authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants.

The permission given law enforcement officers to search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s consent or knowledge.

The expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records.

Since its passage, several legal challenges have been brought against the act, and Federal courts have ruled that a number of provisions are unconstitutional.

FIRST OF ALL AMERICA WAS FOUNDED BY IMMIGRANTS! Ask my ancestors who had genocide committed against them as they INVADED.

SECOND, it is through our DIVERSITY that makes our Nation so strong!

THIRD, I have been to canada and witnessed their "boondoggle" programme FIRST-HAND. Better look at Britian, Australia and EVERY other nation who is being driven into BANKRUPTCY by them before embracing the idea of getting something for NOTHING. Eat some more pie in the sky too while dreaming of a FREE ANYTHING .. someone PAYS!! IF you can't, then YOUR DEBTS become your CHILDRENS and beyond!!! It is criminal already to saddle a newborn with nearly $10K of debt at time of birth today and yu want to put more on that NEWBORNS back?!! Are you even human to want such a thing for a BABY?!!
