Time For a New Patriot Act

2001 was a dark year for Americans.

The Twin Towers fell. The Pentagon was struck.

But the Nation lost much more than that in 2001.

2001 was the year that George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is kind of like a propaganda document for the following reasons.

Literally, the Patriot Act stands for something like “Uniting and Strengthening America.”

This is False.

The Patriot Act was designed to steal our ability to live freely and without the Government looking over our shoulders.

The Government wants our freedom. It actually wants everything! Like much of the American nation, it is suffering from the horrible disease known as Excess.

I am thinking about who is watching me, why they are watching me, what they are watching of me, how they are watching me, and even what they might do with me if they do not like what they see!

Are “they” tagging this article? Am I a terrorist? An enemy of the state? Should I even care?

I think about wiretaps, searching my footprint, and surveillance.

Am I not American? Should I not be thinking about liberty?

I also dream about a truer freedom.
