Prominent national security whistleblowers are calling for the full repeal of the USA Patriot Act, charging that under that legislation the federal government has decimated the U.S. Constitution and warning that unless action is taken, there is no end in sight to government secrecy and manipulation.
"We all owe a debt of gratitude to General David Petraeus for showing us
what a farce [the Obama administration’s] war on whistleblowers and
leaks more generally really is," said Radack.
At last, we have something for which to thank Gen. Betrayus.
Defeat Bin Laden, Win the war on terror - repeal the Patriot Act.
Pre 911 we were sort of a constitutional democracy. Now the government has massive authoritarian power, not unlike N. Korea or China. Thus BinLaden defeated democracy, he won. Does the NSA keep a list of gun owners, a list of Christians, a list of medical pot smokers, a list of peace activists? They probably do, everyone should be against this.
Should Bush spy on peace activists, no. Should Obama spy on NRA gun owners, no.
The Patriot Act would be loved by Nero, Napoleon, Stalin, Hitler or Kim Jong Il; the US is a turn key dictatorship w/ PA.
Democracy is messy and difficult, marshall law would be much easier for government, thus we have the Minerva Initiative studying "social contagion" which in effect is democratic movements. http://minerva.dtic.mil/topics.html
How many ex intelligence people & whistleblowers are re thinking the homeland security state? I'm starting a list.

Winning the war on terror means ending the war on terror, a huge profit center for Wall Street.
The Patriot Act is one of many tools that enable Wall Street and their military industrial complex to maintain a state of continuous war and their continuous taxpayer funded revenue stream.
Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. You get exactly the kind of government that you demand, no more, noless.
Yes, I agree. We must have full repeal. It should have never been enacted. There are no excuses. There must be no exceptions. The whole thing stinks. The whole thing must be repealed.
Agree, for a starter, but what is absolutely needed is a real investigation into the 9-11 false flag and cover.
