According to OUR 4th Amendment,“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
El Presidente (a.k.a. Dictator-in-Chief) Bush (on Wednesday, September 19th) declared:
"So I call on Congress to make the Protect America Act permanent. The need for action is clear. Director McConnell has warned that unless the FISA reforms in the Act are made permanent, our national security professionals will lose critical tools they need to protect our country. Without these tools, it'll be harder to figure out what our enemies are doing to train, recruit and infiltrate operatives in our country. Without these tools our country will be much more vulnerable to attack."
Decoded: Expand the legislative and judicial powers in the EXECUTIVE branch exponentially to forever allow the president to be a dictator without accountability or boundaries- even though the CONSTITUTION expressly forbids it- as was temporarily accomplished when this bill was signed into law on 08-05-07.
Thus, the separation-of-powers principle of 4th Amendment has been and will forever be eviscerated- should Bush get his way! The Protect America Act (PAA) effectively cancels legislative and judicial oversight on warrantless wiretapping and whatever else is deemed vital to the interests of national security. (This includes warrantless arrest and endless confinement for being labled a terrorist or aiding the enemy or any other contrivance on the president's say-so, despite being a legal American citizen.)
The only things making our country “much more vulnerable to attack” are blindly allowing criminal “American” politicians to continue selling out our rights, liberties and sovereignty. The onslaught against the good people of the U.S.A and our by our own government must be stopped at once! When the gov't fears the people (as it should in a true republic) it is healthy and proper; when the reverse is true, all is lost.Even Rome was once a “Republic” before fear and tyranny reigned supreme…. WAKE UP AND ACT AMERICA!!!
