    And so far AQ has shown a tendency to avoid attacking soft, high-profile targets in favor of hard, low-profile ones. Right.

    That's not how laws work.

    Congress cannot enact a law that goes outside its authority under the Constitution. Such a law is invalid upon passage. The Patriot Act is not one of those laws.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Sounds good on paper, unfortunately, that's not how the real world works.... and you know it.

Anti-government whites don't really hijack planes anymore, they would most likely do something like McVeigh did. They aren't generally suicidal.
    How do you know that little old lady didn't have something put in her luggage unbeknownst to her? Or someone is forced to bring something on board with the threat of their family killed? See where I'm going here? As far as your other statements you're assuming, which isn't a prerogative of an agency tasked with preventing a terrorist from being successful. All it takes is one exception.

    I seem to remember someone placing a bomb in a girlfriend's suitcase once... Was that Lockerbie or a different one?

    The Constitution is the document which grants power to the government through the People. You said that the Patriot Act, a piece of legislation from Congress, grants power to the government not granted in the Constitution. In essence, you've admitted that the government granted itself power which was not given to it by the People as dictated through the Constitution. You're not looking very "conservative", it seems more fascist. And being left of fascism is probably a good thing.
