"WASHINGTON - The Senate on Friday refused to reauthorize major portions of the USA Patriot Act after critics complained they infringed too much on Americans' privacy and liberty"

""Those that would give up essential liberties in pursuit in a little temporary security deserve neither liberty nor security," said Sen. John Sununu"

Yayness! The Patriot Act is a piece of legislation stupid on so many levels, and it needs to die. (I know this is news that only some of it, and not all of it, will likely go away.) It added all kinds of restrictions on liberty without fixing any of the serious problems that allowed That Day to happen. I'm a conservative, yet I say the Patriot Act needs to die.
