    This here, I like this. It might be dead in the water but I do enjoy the fact we have some politicians from both sides of the aisle that want to dismantle the Patriot Act.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    I agree. At least there is bi-partisan discussion on something important.

    The Patriot act authorizes the unconstitutional invasion of the right to privacy, totally abridges any form of due process, and adds unnecessary bureaucracy to an executive branch that dropped the ball prior to 9/11 because there was so much bureaucratic mess. Anybody who thinks that this law is keeping us safer is delusional.

    I don't understand! It's called the Patriot Act! Surely it is something all patriots would want.

    I like it. Too bad it's probably a non-starter.

    Important legislation should never be passed in moments of hysteria as this was. And it would have been nice if our Congresspeople actually read the damn thing. Those alone are reasons enough for a do over.

    I must not be a patriot for wanting my basic rights protected then! The audacity!

    That would be great and I bet most citizens would be in favor of it. Which means it probably won't pass.

    Does the constitution define a right to privacy? If so, I missed it.

    Both the 3rd and the 4th Amendments certainly creates a right to privacy.
