This is great! MSNBC has a poll up asking: Should Congress renew the Patriot Act provisions set to expire soon?

When I was there, the results were 80% said NO!

Too bad the media won't pull its head outta its a$$ and get on the peoples' side. If that happened, this administration would be doomed to a Nixonian crash and burn.

Checkit out:

Something's wrong w/it now. I can't get it to go back to "Take the Poll." All I'm getting is the results. Hmmmm.. maybe MSNBC's honchos don't like the results!

I guess they stopped the poll right after I voted. The number is the same as it was this morning.

80% of respondents said congress should NOT renew the patriot act. Too bad. The Shrub's congress doesn't do what the people want. From what I hear, they're planning to beef the powers up even more. Black is white...

I just voted on this site and all seems to work.

Indeed, 80% of Americans are against this Patriot Act. I feel proud today.

Well I guess it doesn't matter as long as the three main bodies want it, that is the "Homeland Security" the "FBI" and "Mr. Gonzales" we will have it, after all it benefits them.
That is why they are in these key positions. Right?

It's nice to know. Too bad the media in general seems so ignorant of this fact.

Yeah boy. Ya gotta love how they just do whatever the hell they wanna do, appoint folks who will make that happen and then when they're on camera, they just lie through their teeth. I wonder if they truly believe their Bu#, or if they ever stop and think.. "I wonder if anyone bought that?"

Let's hear it for Albert "torture is ok" Gonzales.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA..

You expect us to beleave a poll taken by MSNBC? Why thats Al Jazeera Lite.

Of course we should support the Patriot Act, its not bothering anyone in here is it? Have any of you lost rights?? Noooo, but If your name is Mohammed and your a visiting student and have never attended any classes you signed up for....yeah your gonna be checked out and with good reason!!!

Im sure we would have been hit again without this Patriot Act and God Bless Tom Ridge for the fine work he did.

That's a slander, you know.

This is a very fascist argument. Under the Nazi, you didn't have to worry about being sent to one of the wonderful recreation camps if you didn't do anything suspicious. Wait, they could still send you there.



Noooo, but If your name is Mohammed


Racial profiling, I wonder why they make a big deal of it on New Jersey Turnpike, but not elsewhere.

Stop the insanity. And don't rewrite the Consitution, that's like betraying our nation. The Act circuvenes the due process. Period.

What's not to believe? It's a POLL. A poll of 1000 adults. 80% of those polled said NO to it. If you don't wish to believe that, okydoky.
