Nobody Wanted This Pact

The USA PATRIOT ACT was pulled off the shelf and hastily passed into law without legislators reading or debating its merits. Since then, it has been extended and supplemented with more and more such codes which undermine security just as they undermine liberty and privacy. The government is illegitimate and does not represent the will of the people. I refuse to believe that "we" wanted any of this. It has been forced down all of our throats. No words or actions taken by those who have strongly opposed these measures has mattered a fig.
