what's real sick is, even with all the partisan posturing, Democrats and Republicans both voted this in in the beginning and political wordings
aside, many on both sides of the aisle support it now. So-called "liberal" and "conservative" judges on the Supreme Court allow it to go through.
There's lots of shouting and finger pointing and maneuvering on the face of things but no action is taken to prevent it, on the contrary, actions are
taken to move it on. Most of the infighting seems only to be which districts get the monies, benefits, perks, and whatever riders strapped on.
The laws in place, the checks and balances of decades past is perfectly effective when pursued diligently and with the spirit of the law in mind.
Without the ridiculous recent overstepping of bounds un-elected, privately-appointed policymaking special interests like the ACLU stepping in to
protect big money shadowy clients or big profile political motives. They need to remember the spirit of the law as well.
Then, there are no excuses to even attempt a "patriot act" or create another bureacracy like DHS.
