The Patriot - Act - The Anti-Fourth Amendment

By: Rob James | February 19, 2011

“Whenever I think about the Patriot Act, I get angered and I feel an acidic bile of disgust rise in my throat. This legislation should anger every patriot, but unfortunately most Americans have become the obedient, blind, scared sheep, that our government has worked so hard to train and domesticate.I believe that the Patriot Act should be renamed the 

Anti-Fourth Amendment Act. It is blantently, in your face, look-at-me I'm violating the law of the land, UNCONSTITUTIONAL! 

It says we are not secure in our houses, papers, and effects; it says we are not protected against unreasonable searches and seizures; it upholds the belief that we are Guilty until proven Innocent; it shows that our government believes that it has the power to bestow, or take away, the rights of a person.

The 4th Amendment of the Constitution states: "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."

The oath of office for elected government officials states: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

Every politician that votes for the Patriot Act, votes to attack your Liberty and votes against the 4th Amendment, thereby violating their oath of office. Every politician that violates their oath of office, should be considered a treasonous domestic enemy and removed from office.

In case you're not sure what it is about the Patriot Act that is so vile to me, it includes provisions that authorizes the FBI to use roving wiretaps on surveillance targets, it grants the government access to “any tangible items” of individuals under surveillance, and allows the surveillance of individuals and groups not connected to identified terrorist groups.

Everyone that believes that the Patriot Act is needed, is acting out of a fear that is generated and reinforced by our politicans and the Main Stream Media. I believe as our founding fathers did, that Liberty is much more important than Security, and I for one, am not willing to trade one for the other. For those who support this detestable legislation, you are supporting slavery...your slavery, my slavery and the slavery of every American, and for this, you are an enemy of liberty. I will defer to the words of Samuel Adams, who said: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Patriot Act is a hypocritical gesture from our politicans who claim to be spreading freedom across the world and defending Liberty, while they strip away the rights and liberties of their own people. I will end with the words of Benjamin Franklin "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
