I wonder how many selfish people wouldn't mind changing their opinion on having the patriot act implemented if it were to save them on 9/11/01 standing on the top floors of the WTC as the planes hit and they had to decide to jump off the building hitting the pavement at 200 MPH?

Sorry, an America with the Bill of Rights curtailed for any reason is not America. And you are much too trusting of government (probably because the R party runs it.) Would you have supported this measure from a Janet Reno justice department? Also, your argument is purely an emotional one. That's how this reactionary measure got passed in the first place.

I wonder how many people would change their opinion on smoking in bed if there was going to be a fire that night because they fell asleep hold a lit cigarette.

Quality of life is what is important, not the length of it.

Now that's gun grabber logic. The same old BS "If it saves one life". The bottom line is that the Patriot Act wouldn't have mattered there.

How valuable is life without freedom?

So, is that the philosophy that has replaced "Give me liberty or give me death"?

I would gladly jump, if it meant my fellow Americans would enjoy liberty, instead of this damnable "Patriot" Act.

In fact, I would only regret that I would have but one life to give for my country.

just bendover...

Nothing within the Patriot Act would have stopped the attacks on 9/11... Nothing within the Patriot Act will bring them back... Every liberty taken temporarily, is gone forever!
