The USA Patriot Act Should Be Scrapped

It discusses some of the problems and concerns relating to the USA Patriot Act and the Department of Homeland Security.
I read the article published Jan. 27th in which Federal Judge Audrey Collins ruled part of the USA Patriot Act unconstitutional. This is a good start, but the United Fascist Union recommends undoing everything that President Bush and his henchmen have done.

There is a clear and present danger to the Americans' freedom. It threatens our national security. It's not Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi's, nor Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network. It is Bush and the baddies staging a rerun of Adolf Hitler's regime.

If 230 communities around the country are calling for certain sections of the USA Patriot Act to be examined and revoked, this should show voters the gravity of the situation. The United Fascist Union would urge lawmakers to force them to scrap the entire Patriot Act.

We should also call for the disbanding of the Department of Homeland Security, which has the potential to become another Gestapo. And stop these Hitlerian screenings at airports.
