I couldn't find this posted in the forums, so I thought I'd mention it. The vote passed to extend the act by a count of 275-144. I haven't seen much in the media about it thus far.

I've been trying to find a list of those delegates who voted in favor (so I can demonize them
), but I can't seem to find a link that works. If any of you fine ATS folks can provide one, I'd be much obliged.

This grievous attack on the Constitution should not be tolerated. It seems the vote last week was nothing but window dressing. I don't know why I'm surprised. It seemed like a real victory when it was struck down. I suppose I let my joy overtake my sense of realism.

Here's the Washington Post story:

voices.washingtonpost.com...

The roll should be found here, but I can't get it to open...

clerk.house.gov...

So? haha. They've already won this battle. I don't know what watching us would do to improve that. The Senate votes next, apparently on a few competing bills...which could extend it indefinitely. I wish American citizens were watching us. heh.

What is the point of voting if when the bill does not get passed they keep presenting the same bill until it does get passed.

The same thing happens here in Europe so you're not alone.

I still can't get the Roll to open. If anyone else has any luck, please post the findings here.

Of course it passed, silly goose. Name one time when big brother in the last century ever once voted in favor to give up some power? Can't think of one at this moment, trying, uhm, let's see the government did something to give more power to the people, more freedom, less restriction, uhm,mmm, nope I draw a blank on that one. You want the Patriot Act repealed? Two options on the table the way I see it 1. it is repealed so it can be replaced by an act much more restricitve to freedom or 2. a couple hundred thousand armed patriots go to DC and repeal it ourselves. I'm in!

The difference this time wasn't that they presented it again, it was that they did it in a different way. The numbers that quashed it the first time met a different requirement. 2/3's majority was required the first time. This time, only a majority was.

It's their Valentine's gift to the American People.

Awwww......

Being such as it is.... which do you think contributed most to their inability to stand up to the interests of the military industrial complex?
- Fear
- Submission
- Servitude

-or-

- wanting to be "on THEIR side"

Sorry, depressing news... I know that it was unlikely that any party or group of party members would dare to call this abomination what it is..... but I liked to hope that personal courage still had some place in 'their' world.

I know, you're completely right. I just really got far too excited over it being shot down a few days back. I thought, hey, maybe the new blood actually is trying to prove a point. It was silly of me to think, but we're nothing if not dreamers.

The bad news - expect to have your private parts felt up, your phone tapped, your bank account robbed, your cat impregnated, your emails having a, "This email approved by Homeland Security" added, being forced through scanners of all sorts, unable to leave the house, forced to take a lot of prescription drugs and watch mindless media, etc.

The good news - it is just an indicator that this society is about to fail. So, expect the bad news to be short lived.

Who knows, I haven't been felt up in some time. I might like it.

I would honestly think it was fear. There was a recent report (I'll look for the link) about how vulnerable and likely we are to be attacked. Yes, it happens everytime there's a similar vote, but this time was particularly damning.

I also noted on my facebook page after it was originally defeated, that despite how wonderful it was, if it held up...we should expect false flags and homegrown terror to show the error of our ways. I guess we should at least be thankful it didn't get that far. ha. What a joke.

Just to update, I'm still unable to get into the Roll to see who voted for it/against it.

I'm still trying to get through via clerk.house.gov... if any of you would like to try.

If someone knows a different route to go or has found the information, please post it ASAP. Thanks!

I'm not surprised. Seeing that it has been in effect for many years and no one has really been held responsible for passing it the first time, why not authorize it again?

I thought the TPers were going to come in and bring us smaller .gov! Not even months in, and they are already selling out those who voted for them....
