Senate Passes 6-Month Patriot Act Extension

“‘This will allow more time to finally agree on a bill that protects our rights and freedoms while preserving important tools for fighting terrorism,’ said Sen. Feingold, D-Wis., who was the only senator to vote against the original Patriot Act in 2001.”

Where do you draw the line? A six-month extension is a compromise with the administration’s attempts to broaden the act. Piece by piece, our civil liberties are being chipped away. Sometimes, you just have to say no.
