I Am Against The Patriot Act
The Patriot Act is a interesting piece of legislature. Many are misunderstood to what the Patriot Act does. This gives the Federal Government the right to invade the privacy of any American for any reason in the name of terrorism. Many are for the Patriot Act not realizing that it in fact violates their 4th amendment rights given to them by the Constitution.
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
The name of the Patriot Act was carefully chosen for basic conditioning reasons. It symbolizes that if you are for the Patriot Act, then you are a true patriot. But if you are against the Patriot Act, you must be a terrorist. Is it terrorism to want to stick by the Constitution. The one document that our great country was founded on. Our founding fathers spoke out going against the Constitution for good reason. The Patriot Act makes us less free than we have ever been in our history (that is until Obama signed into law the NDAA on January 1, 2012 when everyone was distracted with the New Years celebration). Our countries principles have been changed little by little in the past few generations. This is a major concern and must be dealt with.
I will promise to never vote in favor of bills against the Constitution of the United States of America & will also fight against any previous bills signed into law that attack these principles as well. This is a oath I make for the office I am currently running for as well as the offices I plan to run for in the future. Nicholas Cates Riali
