    many of the same senators and congressmen that voted for the patriot act are still in office. if any of them called for obamas impeachment over the NSA, a indirect consequences of the patroit act, they would be nothing more then political hypocrites.

    the only ones who could honestly argue for such a action is a politician who has opposed the patriot act from day one, and has never voted in favor of it.

    Patrick Leahy and Tom Daschle, the two men that could have effectively opposed the Patriot Act both got anthraxed!

    Shocker...spying on people and stealing their private information is not legal? Who would have ever guessed that?!?!?!?

    News for all of you...whether we arrest the whole damn lot, impeach the POTUS and threaten the death penalty on anyone who even looks like they're going to spy on us....they'll still spy on us. Just as sure as death and paying taxes.

    The problem is that the one thing that the Obama Admin and Republicans agree on are these NSA programs. It didn't matter who won the last two elections, Hillary, McCain, Obama, Romney etc... these programs were going to be ramped up and instituted regardless. That's the really pathetic thing to me.

    Of course it's illegal, of course Obama and the last like 3 Presidents should have been impeached. Will it change? Will we hold our politicians accountable? Likely not.
