He also explained that congress members are being forced to pass this act through legislation without them reading it. If they don't, they would be accused of aiding terroists.

So to sum it up, Patriot Act I took away our freedom of privacy. Patriot Act II took away our freedom. The government, if Patriot Act II is passed, will essentially be able to make you disappear. When your family goes searching for you, the government can make sure that not even the police can find you.
