    Patriot Act up for renewal and no one notices - National Independent | Examiner.com

    Both parties continuing to show that at the end of the day they aren't that much different.

    Obama won't roll it back because he knows it works.

    Basically Barry and the Dimocrats don't have the balls to change that which they found easy to criticize when they were sitting on the sidelines. But now that Barry's responsible for the safety of our country, seeing the most sensitive of high level intelligence data regularly, he knows his ass will be grass if they wussy up the Act and then something bad happens.

    I think blastoff is right....though I'd have said it differently. We'll never feel safe enough again to retire these extraordinary government powers.

    And they keep infringing on our constitutional rights with this one, hoping maybe if both sides keep it down they'll get away with it. The sad part is they're probably right, and they will.

    Ben Franklin got it right with this one:

    "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."

    But would Ben say that if he were here now after the threats and attacks we've endured? I wonder. He could have never imagine our country now.

    He lived during the Revolutionary War.

    I think he understands the cost.

    Basically I think he's saying it's better to live free with danger than be a serf to the state.

    We are in danger of nuclear attacks. That is different from the guns and swords.

    Barry just wants to be your friend and give you everything you wanted. And hey, do turn in your neighbor if he looks like he can fly a crop duster, but can't land it. OK?
