Shouldn’t giving up our liberties our fore fathers fought for require at least an honest debate? Apparently not. The deadline to renew the Patriot act (oh that title makes me laugh every time) before it expires is before Memorial day weekend (much like the Federal Reserve Act being passed before Christmas) and Obama is in Europe so better pass it it quick without debate guys…. How are you representatives voting?
And while we are on the subject I have two thoughts:
1: Why are we not hearing this on the news everywhere we turn? This is huge!
2: Why has Obama flip flopped on this issue? Oh yeah and why is no one calling him out on this? Guess I’ll have to…
