I voted "cut-back". I understand that we are at war, but it has not been explained to me what has been prevented in exchange for the loss of liberty that is associated with the Patriot Act.

I can understand (but don't agree with) the "Extended" or "Expanded" vote, these people trust the govmt more than I and probably want the borders closed.

I cannot understand why anyone would want a wartime act made "Permanent".

The same people who want the Telephone Tax (Spanish American War) and the Income Tax (WWI) made permanent.
