    • On September 09, 2010, by countupir - I am against any 'improvement' on the patriot act. the patriot act is against the US constitution and the only accepted response to the patriot act is repeal, undo or discard the entire original bill and all subsequent laws that pertain to it.

    • On September 28, 2009, by clearcut777 - Both the bills introduced by Senator Finegold and Senator Leahy should be passed. This will save innocent Americans and American businesses from the FBI psuedo harrassment, blackmailing and gag orders that violate fourth amendment rights of all Americans. Their should be strong oversight over the FBI and criminal prosecution of its top leadership and agents for violating the laws and NSL and Patriot act statues. Ideally Patriot act should be dumped completely. Their was no attack on United states since its birth more then 200 years. The zionists(GOP) minus President Bush used this tool to consolidate themselves in United States in all spheres of economic sectors and globally by using it through the Pentagon and CIA. Thank God its coming to an end. Thankyou Senator Leahy and Senator Finegold. May God Bless you for your efforts and hard work on this so that Americans should taste real freedom once they get rid of the draconian law along with the FBIs Gestopo hypocrites.
