Obama re-authorized the “Patriot Act”

On February 27, Obama re-authorized the “Patriot Act.”(1)

The “New York Post” correctly pointed out the following:


“It wasn’t just book-hawking authors warning of the end of our liberties in the Bush years. Democrats recoiled from the Patriot Act — recently reauthorized without a peep — as a foul reprise of the Alien and Sedition Acts. Howard Dean fumed that it trampled ‘the rights of average Americans.’ Sen. Russell Feingold declared it had made Americans ‘afraid to read books.'”(2)

Likewise, the organization Obama is from also claimed to oppose the “Patriot Act.”

The Democrats only oppose the “Patriot Act” when Republicans are in office. The Democrats destroy the movement against the “Patriot Act” from within. MIM opposes the “Patriot Act” steadily, regardless of the party in power.

The movement against the “Patriot Act” turned out to be ineffective. The people need to study politics more closely and learn to see through frauds like ACLU fund-raising techniques.

Another important task to oppose the “Patriot Act” is to support Mideast diplomacy to the max and not let politicians like Obama step on it. The “terrorism” problem is a question of war against U.$. imperialism, which occupies countries Muslim and non-Muslim without justification and never solves the Palestine question.
