Conservatives express concern about USA PATRIOT

“Since September 11, a flood of federal legislation has reduced American freedom without increasing our security.”
“Welcome to America under the Patriot Act. One person claims to ‘smell something,’ and the feds can round up everyone’s records. From books you check out to credit card purchases, money transfers to medications, your activities are now subject to federal surveillance.”
“The Patriot Act was rushed into law before any effort was made to understand why the feds failed to stop the 9/11 attacks.”
These quotes all sound familiar. They might have come from any of the dozens of articles about this legislation that LISNews has linked to since it was passed. The difference is the source. This article is from The American Conservative.
