    Time to kill the Patriot act. It was only supposed to be emergency powers to combat a temporary threat. Ten years is too long

    I never trusted anything that had to be named the "Patriot Act" in order to get passed

    You are aware the Democrats easily passed it twice while in power?

    The GOP struggles??

    Are you serious? Obama renewed the fucking thing.

    I opposed it then and I oppose it now.

    The MAJORITY of average "Joe six-pack" republicans oppose that bullshit...

    Nothing Democrats call "affordable" should be passed either.
