Herman Cain Exposed: The Patriot Act

Herman Cain said recently in an interview with The Atlantic (link) that he agrees with 90% of The Patriot Act, which is arguably the most detrimental attack on our civil liberties since our emancipation from the British in 1776. When asked what the 10% he disagreed with was, he only gave a vague dismissive response, which indicates that he probably hasn’t read it (as most people haven’t) but wanted to retain for himself an exit strategy if ever criticized on the issue.

Though most Americans arbitrarily support the Patriot Act in respect to how “9/11 changed our way of life”, few are aware that the Patriot Act was authored long before that date. This negates that notion altogether and confirms that 9/11 was craftily used as a convenient device to instate the legislation.

Upon reading the 1,472* page bill, one can see why the authors made sure it was not available to the eyes of our congressmen before it was voted on. The ill-titled “Patriot” Act represents anything but patriotism, and in fact impedes on virtually all of the amendments in the Bill of Rights. Due to the fact that most Americans are oblivious to the contents of the Patriot Act, I will briefly go over a few bullet points; however I will spare you lengthy detail to abstain the scope of this document.

· Freedom from unreasonable searches: The government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation. Violates Amendment IV

· Right to a speedy and public trial: The government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial. Violates Amendment VI

Herman Cain does not understand the Bill of Rights

and that is why he can support this. Personally, I think if you have not read the Act in full, you should not support it.

Just another empty suit.

But he could sell you pizza for $9.99.

$9.99.

Pretty clever.

Using the 99 cent fast food "value meal" approach.

They probably have some nano-technology ingredient in the top 5 fast food chains, that goes straight to the part of your brain that uses critical thinking. It's like a lobotomy in a bag, for ONLY 99 cents!

Watching people fall for this guy just makes me want to puke.

Then it makes me want to dry heave whatever bile I have left, and puke it out as well.

Then..Well you get the picture.
