Protect America Act questionSubmitted by kevinz on Tue, 05/27/2008 - 12:59
You may be familiar with the Protect America Act which is:
"The Protect America Act is a law now passed by both houses of Congress which replaces judicial warrants with executive prerogative and substitutes blank checks for reasons. The Protect America Act gives the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence the power to spy on your emails, your web surfing, your telephone calls and other electronic communications. All this is carried out without a warrant, which is required by the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution. "
However I was very surprised to learn that Ron Paul did not vote against such an evil bill.
I doubt Dr Paul would ever support a bill taking away our liberties.
I'm pretty sure he did not vote for it, but does anyone know why he did not vote against it ?
