The purpose of government is to maintain order and protect citizens. i do not feel protected with the patriot act in place.

Think of doctors that talk to patients over the phone. Does this not defy the whole patient doctor confidentiality?
or how about lawyers talking over the phone to a client?

And even if I was supportive of the patriot act, what's to say that the government was listening tin to a conversation that would've perhaps made it so that Foley's actions were brought to light sooner?

And even if I did support the patriot act, i just don't have enough faith in the US government that they'd know what to do with the info.

I'd feel comfortable knowing the government wasn't wasting money funding this act, looking for info that they wouldn't know what to do with anyway.

I don't need the money. I've got plenty of it.

I just don't like the idea of people listening in on my conversations.

Think of it like this.

The Constitution does not clearly state that all people are entitled to privacy but it's implied. The fact that any one person's phone is being tapped means that their rights are being violated. if any one eprson's right are violated it leaves room for someone else (like me) to have their rights violated.

And I can't imagine the government tapping justa nyone's phone. So maybe people that leave the country frequently (like me) or people who might have ties or share cultural backgrounds with al qaida. But that's discriminatory if you ask me.

well you dont have anything to hide....do you? and youve gotta see the picture as a whole. if a few people rights are "violated" to protect the other 300 million citizens, im personally ok with that.
