Republicans Love Constitution Long Time Baby, Give Good Suckee-Fuckee
Typical whorish behavior from the worst party ever:
Today, Democrats offered a motion to recommit on legislation to extend expiring provisions of the PATRIOT Act to ensure that PATRIOT Act powers are not used to violate the Constitutional freedoms and protections guaranteed to all Americans. The motion included two parts:Sadly, it's only House Dems that are decent, as the Obama administration happily supports this shit, as well as outrageous unconstitutional actions like what was done to Jose Padilla.
No Constitutional shortcuts. When investigating American citizens, the government must comply with the Constitution, even in national security investigations
Challenging unconstitutional action. If a citizen challenges the government's use of PATRIOT Act power in a court of law, the case must be expedited to ensure the individual's rights are upheld.
A total of two House Republicans -- Texas' Ron Paul and North Carolina's Walter Jones -- voted for this, while 234 did not.
