PATRIOT Act Canceled – for Now
In the wake of 9/11, President Bush and Congress micturated their collective pants and imposed the unconstitutional and misnamed “PATROT Act,” really the TRAITOR Act, to destroy our constitutional liberties. Yesterday some Republican congressmen, including newly elected Tea Party types, joined most Democrats in the House in voting against extending the TRAITOR Act another 10 months.
Californian Republicans voting against the TRAITOR Act were:
They should be applauded. They defended Americans’ precious freedoms, without which America is just a big East Germany.
And here’s the list of California House Republicans voting for for this Soviet tyranny over our once-free people. Shame on them:
Mary Bono Mack
Dan Lungern (natch, for the author of the repressive Lungren Law)
Howard P. “Buck” McKeon
Didn’t these Republicans get the message of the Tea Party revolt that Americans want less tyranny, not more? What will it take to wake them up, riots in the streets Cairo-style?
They can redeem themselves by, in the future, voting against renewing the TRAITOR Act and other tyrannies.
Americans need to rally to make sure the TRAITOR Act is deep-sixed and our liberties reclaimed.
