Just some references
Pro=remove patriot act
con= to either keep patriot act or remove/limit only part of it
Intro: I admit the patriot act has some problems in fact some parts of it scare the living crap out of me but there is one beneficial part of it that shouldn"t be eliminated and that is the protection this act provides for American citizens.

Cont 1: patriot act has had 300 instances of saving lives
not all of them were terrorist attacks but all the cases were instances in which a person was planning or in the action of causing someone or some people harm. The patriot act uses wire taping and works with police and security forces to stop crime.

Cont 2: protects power/electric grids
power grids allow electricity and energy for people"s homes so they are very important the patriot act ensures terrorist or others can't hack into these grids and eliminate electricity for the American people.

cont. 3 Enhances security
The patriot act allows businesses and other private organizations to share threats which in turn enhances security.Causes businesses to report fraud and protects borders as a whole ensuring we can see terrorist attacks coming.

um.. I don't see a reason to respond to that so um. Basicuuly I am still winning since he posted something that has nothing to do with the patriot act and I have I would also like to add some stuff

"According to a 29-page report to Congress released by Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft, Justice Department terrorism investigations have resulted in charges against 310 people and have yielded 179 convictions or guilty pleas. The report says the Patriot Act was central to those cases.-Washington post
"Information-sharing facilated by the Patriot Act was critical to the successful dismantling of terror cells in Portland, Ore., and Virginia. The information-sharing provisions contained in the act assisted the prosecution in San Diego of those involved with an al-Qaida drugs-for-weapons plot involving "Stinger" anti-aircraft missiles.
Source=NY times
"The act also aided in the prosecution of Enaam Arnaout, who had a relationship with Osama bin Laden and used his charity organization to obtain funds illicitly from unsuspecting Americans for terrorist groups-NY times

so yea patriot act stops terriorst related activities as well and helps protect our borders which is extremely needed so we can't afford to repel or remove it.
