  • Yes, it goes too far.

    Yes, the Patriot Act is unconstitutional, because it gives the executive unfettered authority to interfere in the personal lives of Americans, without just cause. Under the guise of protecting us, the government is doing the same kind of intrustions that people are fighting against. The government monitors everything we do now, from docotrs to emails. It is too far.

  • The Patriot Act is unconstitutional

    The Patriot Act is unconstitutional. It violates various rights of American citizens. It greatly expands surveillance and investigative powers and it diminishes American people's right to privacy. The Patriot Act also allows search warrants to be issued without probable cause, which violates the Fourth Amendment requiring probable cause for search warrants.
