Repeal the Patriot Act

Time to repeal the Patriot Act. The system worked fine...senior government officials didn't.
Time to repeal the Patriot Act. The system worked fine...senior government officials didn't. They tried to keep it quiet to cover their asses. Repeal the Patriot Act...repeal all these new government laws, taxes, spending, etc. Their excuse now...they knew planes might be hijacked in the conventional sense but didn't know when...then why did it take 50 min. to scramble planes after the first hijacking???


"I believed as a citizen, and I know my mom who paid taxes believed that her government was going to connect those dots to protect her. ... The fact that people are now saying, 'Well, it's a blame game, it's being politicized.' I really hope that people can step beyond that and look at the facts. Three thousand people were murdered. Let's find out what happened. Let's make sure it won't happen again."

-relative of 9-11 victim in response to new information that senior government officials knew about possible hijackings before 9-11.
