Eddie Munster Votes in Favor of the Patriot Act
Mr. Small Government
cast his vote
today in favor of the kind of government that can:
Use roving wiretaps on surveillance subjects which include U.S. citizens.
Utilize and access any tangible items such a library records.
Target surveillance of persons not connected to identified terrorist groups.
The bill failed to pass. However, don't get too excited about an end to the Patriot Act/Big Brother type of intrusion, this bill will come up again and not be subject to the 2/3rds needed to pass.
Nearly two dozen Republicans voted with Democrats to reign in the bill.
The bipartisan honeymoon was nice...at least for a day.
