The Patriot Act, read by nobody and passed in five minutes proves that a 9-11 type event can allow any law imaginable to slide through our checks and
balances like a hot knife through butter. Regardless of what you believe caused 9-11 you must admit we are suckers for the old trauma reaction trick.
If and when a massive terrorist event like this occurs again, it won't matter who the real terrorists are, there will be a big bill to follow. It
will be hundreds of pages long and include laws so far removed from the actual event as to be ridiculous. And the worse part is, it to will likely
pass in 5 minutes of debate. Does a nation of people, so afflicted with apathy to allow this to happen, deserve to be free?
