Gee, as if the incredible powers given to the government through the original "Patriot" Act wasn't enough, there are new proposals being tossed
into the new and improved model that will be shot through the was-hallowed halls of Congress.
If a jury finds someone guilty of a terror act but doesn't come back with the death penalty, the prosecutor can get another jury if one person on
the original jury voted for the death penalty. Nifty, huh? Why even bother with a jury? Let's just let the government decide what to do, right?
It also triples the number of terror crimes that warrant the death penalty. Check this blurb out:
...and authorize the death penalty for a person who gives money to an organization whose members kill someone, even if the contributor did not know
that the organization or its members were planning to kill.
so, those who see a new world order .ed our way are just a bunch of loons and nutcases, right?
Wow, this has to be one of the most rediculous ones ive heard yet. Are tickets avaliable for the next civil war yet? *checks ticketmaster.com*.
Nope, not yet. Thankyou almighty for bringing this up, now I have something to type about. Just kidding. This has to be one of the most rediculous
acts I have heard yet. It seems like everyday, the Acts, Rights, and Laws are crashing into each other and not making any sense what so ever.

Ohh can I agree to that. Seems like nobody wants to be left on earth but the almighty oil sucking money hungry, almighty "want to be" power of the
United States. Like I said in one last post, where is our freedom going? Its not, it is being contracted and taken away while we sit here not
knowing what is going on. Now, what Thomas said, about being executed when you did not know what was going on. Lets take a look at some more of the
"Bill of Rights".
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein
the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the
accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the
assistance of counsel for his defense.
Now, we have a right to freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. Then why does the governement not let us speak the truth in justice when we want
to? Seems like they just believe what they want to believe and thats it. It stops at their point of mind. Its almost like they go ahed and kill the
unwanted so they can make their point. I dont know what point. Whoever is the "master mind" behind this revision is a complete greedy idiot. We
already really didnt do anything when 9/11 happend except get the guy with the oil.. Oops, did I say that? So why even put this act in? There are
tons of foriegn organisations killing people everyday that other people are donating to. They have no idea, why should they be the ones to suffer?
My question is, what exactly is the government trying to put a stop to? Or putting something into action? Notice, that all of this is happening
close to when the elections are about to start again. They are getting close, so why screw the next guy over? Is it to brainwash the current
citizens to think, "wow, that last guy did all he could do"? Our governement is falling apart and growing rediculous due to the fact that I feel,
all they want is money. Why race for it?, its alwyas going to be there. So why make laws to take life over a dollar?
Thats one thing that really gets to me, sorry im getting of subject. But why put someone to death just to get that extra dollar? If you were to
offer the government a million dollars to death over an american indivdual, wouldnt it be their smart choice of the money?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no Warrants shall isssue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmatino, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the
persons or things to be seized.
Why should it be right for a SWAT team to break into somones house without and warrant just to disturb them and their family, and take them to jail
without letting them say anything?
You have the right to remain silent, anything you say "WILL and CAN" be used against you in the court of law...
Why even speak when they are just going to believe their own opinion anyway?
Enough for me.
