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 risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.
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 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.
Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
That would be great and I bet most citizens would be in favor of it. Which means it probably won't pass.
