Do people even know about the PATRIOT Act?
    #1631792 - 06/13/03 06:40 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I was talking recently with a conservative friend of mine, and when I brought up John Ashcroft, he said, "Well, ya know what? John Ashcroft is a good man." After further questioning, I found out that he hadn't even heard of the PATRIOT Act. I guess Rush Limbaugh doesn't talk about it on his show. Does the average American know about the PATRIOT Act? I wonder how many would still support Bush if they did.

Duh. I'm talking about the average American here. Also, how much coverage has it been recieving in the media? I would think that the "liberal media" would make a big deal out of it.

The liberal media DOES talk about it all the time. Its just that MOST americans get their news from TV and there is no liberal media on TV.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Many have heard of it. Few understand it. Nobody ever talks about it. And if they do, they say that without it we are no longer safe. And if anybody challenges it, they point the finger at him and call him un-patriotic.

Hence the name, Patriot Act.

It's a semantic twist of meaning. Labels can serve to disguise the content.

Strip away the labels and see the contents for what they are.

That's the way to see through deception.

Many have heard of this. Few understand this. Nobody ever talks about this.

Spread the word.
