voices.washingtonpost.com

The House on Thursday will again take up a bill that would extend until December key provisions of the Patriot Act counterterrorism surveillance law, two days after the measure fell seven votes short of the super-majority required for passage under fast-track rules.

The bill will be brought up again under a "closed rule," meaning that no amendments can be offered. It will need only a simple majority to pass instead of the two-thirds that was required on Tuesday.

Anytime the people win a little they bring it back for a second vote just like they did for the bailouts!

I had to make sure how Ron Paul voted because well, I just don't trust him. Something about him just doesn't sit right with me. Kinda like one of those used car salesmen that will tell you anything you want to hear and then sell you a lemon.

But he did vote against it this time.

1. I don't live in, nor have I ever lived in Texas, so no, technically he has never represented me and has never fought for my freedom.

2. 30 years? Really? Isn't there someone else that has been in power for 30 years? Oh that's right, the president of Egypt.

I personally think there is something very shady about anyone that has spent that long in office. Sorry, but that's a career politician, and I don't care if everyone think's that he is god on Earth, something about that man just doesn't sit right with me.

Whenever i see stuff like this happening in america it always reminds me how 'the empire' came to be in the star wars movies, george lucas himself got the story for that how nazi germany came into being.

Oh how history is repeating itself right before our eyes.

Just emailed my Congressman and Senators and told them I'm against the extension. I'm not sure if that will matter ultimately, but at least I did something. Now they can add another black mark to my profile.
