    President Bush is irate about Senate Democrats, and a handful of Republicans, stalling the renewal of the Patriot act legislation. The 52-47 vote to advance the measure fell shy by 8 votes. Bush said that teh decision was irresponsible and endanger the lives of our citizens. "The senators who are filibustering must stop their delaying tactics and the Senate must reauthorize the Patriot Act," Bush said. The government could never protect us from terrorism. The patriot act was passed with a small margin in haste to create bigger government and it issues more control over the citizens. It’s a state’s right to interprete teh constitution as it was founded. I thought republicans could grasp this.

    Is a drug dealer catagorized as a lone wolf terrorist? These are questions raised when observing the fact that roving wiretaps and NSA eavesdropping permit lower law enforcement to use the patriot act in other suspicious activities. Library and medical records can be obtained legally thru a secret court now. Personally, I don’t care if the government knows I check out books deemed anti-american or anti-establishment. This patriot act grants the law enforcement power to follow the lowliest "lone wolf" thru wiretap and gps trackings. I do believe it is an infringement on the rights of a US citizen. Even non government officials can be spies.

    Amendment IV RHa8765611

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    Searches can now be carried out without a suspect knowing.

    Bush Lets Government Spy on Callers Without Warrants! President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for evidence of terrorist activity without the court-approved warrants ordinarily required for domestic spying.
