It's surprising that Rep.

It's surprising that Rep. Rooney from Florida who was on the witness panel for Foreign Affairs Committee re Action in Libya just the other day voted to SUPPORT Patriot Act. and Rep. Gibson from NY voted NO.

A NO vote is not a NO vote

It is all just a game.

They are all FOR more Government and central control.

Then they play the game of Democrats being for entitlements to help the poor (yeah right, by running the country into the ground and handing bailouts to all special interests).

...and Republicans being for wars which they sell as "fighting for freedom and democracy" (yeah right, by bombing innocent people, woman and children).

The important thing is that just because someone votes NO doesn't mean they are on our side. Just that they want to keep us believing in the game, the theatre that is politics.

The two-party system is a fake. It is one party with two "marketing strategies". It gives us all something to believe in and something to fight over, while the Elite turns our freedom into slavedom and our republic into a centralised, totalitarian tyranny.

Sad and...

all so very true.

There's vote swapping too on all issues.

Many are told they can vote either way only after there are enough votes to pass the bill.

Take a long look at that list

Take a long look at that list and realize most of the Yea's were Republians.

Michelle neocon AKA fake

Michelle neocon AKA fake teaparty Bachman voted FOR the UNpatriot act!!

Nancy Pelosi voted AGAINST extended the unpatriot act???? WTF?? She is coming around to the freedom movement...LMAO

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I doubt that very much. It

I doubt that very much. It was in her best interests to vote "no"???? Id be very concerned about Boehner not voting at all. There's a real "mugwump" for you. An interesting list.

If you are surprised at your rep's No vote....

you may have Rand to thank. Highlighting the issue for gun owners may have resulted in some feeling compelled to vote no.

Grijalva voted nay! I would

Grijalva voted nay! I would have never guessed that in a million years. Guess he doesn't want all of his illegal aliens that he panders towards to get upset about illegal wiretaps.

I can't believe it!! Mine voted NO too!! Even after a letter expressing how much officers need these tools and what not. I wrote back how about upholding your oath of office. Maybe that finally clicked in his head??

Have to thank Rush Holt for once!

I hope the yea voters pay..

I hope the yea voters will pay with their political careers! Many republicans still believe in the neo-con agenda or they just aren't well informed enough! I say that all the yea voters should go through the naked body scanners and pat downs with their families everyday and put it on youtube! Man my congresswoman Marsha Blackburn voted yes..it just makes me ill on how the Constitution and Bill of Rights just gets trampled on! Rand Paul, you are doing the right thing and I hope many others will wake up and join you.

Too many still believe this is to protest us. They think like this, "You can take my liberties away. I guess I wasn't using them anyway."

most likely a little bonus from the military industrial complex. Or the ability to say "I believe in a safe country" instead of "I support the constitution", which seems to be more popular today with the avg american.

I am very surprised Allen West voted no...didn't see that one coming.

same here

That was a bit of a shocker. West is the congressman for my district. I'm going to call and thank him for this, and ask again that he cosponsor HR459 (audit the Fed) as I have requested 4 times already.

But he also voted to give the President more money for militarism and the power to wage war anywhere he desires.

I noticed that too. I

I noticed that too. I actually heard some clip the other day that he said he supported a Congressional debate on the issue since none had happened. Glad to see he is standing up for the Constitution on this issue.

most likely is.
he knew it would fail so he voted for it.

Maybe, but maybe not. I am hoping for the latter. Would be nice to see if West is actually on our side on this issue.

This might seem like a simple question

from an outsider... Does the Senate have too much power for 100 people?

Thanks,

Mike for that information. I see both of my Senators, not surprisingly, voted YEA! Traitors!

Pardon my language everyone,

Pardon my language everyone, but fuck you Congress! We the people have had enough! We do not want to see our Constituional rights trampled on for another 4 years. Vote every last bum who voted for the Patriot extension out of office in 2012!

Why did Pelosi vote "Nay" w/Ron Paul?

Any ideas? I thought that she loved the Patriot Act.

Probably a publicity stunt

I bet she did it just to please her constituents. If she had the slightest feeling it might be in danger of not passing, she would have voted for it. Instead, she knew more than enough Congresspeople would vote for it to pass, so she probably did it for publicity reasons.

By the way, thank you to Marcy Kapture, Dennis Kucinich and Walter Jones. All of them have been consistent in opposing the Patriot Act alongside Ron Paul since day 1.

I don't really know...

probably because now Boehner and the Repubs will approve the Patriot Act re-authorization themselves. Now that she's not the speaker, she can pretend to be a loving liberal again. It's just politics, and if your opponents want to look like the aggressive tyrants, let them.
