    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

    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.
