What is your reaction to the Senate rejecting the extension of the USA Patriot Act?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 17, 2005
“I’m pleased about it. I thought it was unnecessary because the NSA already had most of those abilities. It’s good for them to share information, but they shouldn’t grant those powers to other agencies.”
“As long as it leads to the end of the Patriot Act, then it’s the best decision they could have made.”
“I don’t think it’s good at all. They shouldn’t be the ones to make that decision. They should put it to a popular vote and let the people decide if it’s needed or not.”
“If that’s the act that takes away my rights and imposes on my freedom because they are paranoid about terrorists, then I say let it die.”
