Why is it that the patriot act invades privacy of U.S citizens being monitored by the government? Does it not make all the sense in the world that we the people should be monitoring the very individuals we give the power to who make the decisions. We can not even listen to major issues being discussed. There is only one reason for that. The government, all of them know we would not appreciate what is going on. The next law should give us the right to listen in on their phone conversations, monitor their money. Watch them discuss our business. I can not stress how important it is for all of us to be aware at all times what the people whio have our power are doing with it.
