    Obama is a cowardly weenie for not fighting this. Bush was delighted with the bill because he IS an authoritarian.



    I dunno, Obama seems quite the statist to me.

    Just shows that Obama will do anything to get re-elected. He is a constitutional lawyer!
    "Do you think that it is necessary to give up some civil liberties in order to make the country safe from terrorism, or some of the government's proposals will go too far in restricting the public's civil liberties?"

    Necessary To Give Up Some Liberties 51%

    Some Proposals Will Go Too Far 36%

    It Depends 8%

    Unsure 5%

    IMO the Patriot Act is overhyped as some kind of authoratarian tool,but apparently youd be in the minority.

    Do you support Obamacare? Just wondering, since you seem to be against authoritarianism.
