My tea party-backed congressman (C. Fleishman-R(TN)) voted in favor of extending the Patriot Act. Isn't the credo of the Tea Party, "less government"?

Unfortunately most of the Patriot Act is permanent... it was made so in March of 2006 (I think)

The House of Representatives voted 280-138 Tuesday to reauthorize the Patriot Act, following an 89-10 Senate vote to reauthorize the act last week. The measure has gone to President Bush, who had urged Congress to pass the reauthorization.

The reauthorization makes permanent 14 of 16 provisions of the original Patriot act, adds only minimal protections for civil rights, and adds a provision to restrict the sale of cold medicine. That’s right, cold medicine.


You heard right. Cold medicines are going to be moved behind the counter, and you’re going to have to show ID to purchase them. Plus, you’ll only be able to buy so much of it in any given day or any given month. Whole family’s sick? Too bad. That’s just another thing the Patriot Act will add to the price you pay for the War on Drugs.

^I think you are right Sam, but the vote was on, what I consider to be three crucial points. One, is the continued legality of unwarranted, roving wiretaps. Two, is the FBI's ability to unconditionally access library records, etc. Third, is the "lone wolf" provision.

What I find tragic is the GOP recently took control of the House of Representatives, mainly on the platform of "less government". Yet, 210 Republican representatives voted in favor of extending these provisions. Adamantly oppose "government healthcare", but support government wiretapping.

Wow, something we can agree on. The Patriot Act is anything but Patriotic.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Ben Franklin

I hate all things Bush! That family has taken more of my freedoms than probably any other.
