It has been the excuse to enforce the UN Global agenda. 9.11 was an inside job. Create the fear and terror, then work to destroy the country to the point they can call in UN "peacekeepers" who have no affiliation other than to the UN, and would work for their richest elite - not to help us.

No, many parts of it including section 215 completely undermine the constitutional rights of U.S citizens

Well... Not really. They've gone too far with it. I do support placing cameras everywhere and monitoring what people do in public. Are 2 guys carrying satchel charges to the stands of the Boston Marathon? Gosh, maybe that's a problem. Did an unattended bag explode? Gosh, maybe we can see who put it there before it blew up... Is someone mugging your mother in front of the A&P? Gosh, maybe we could alert the cop on the next block...

No. I understand the idea, and I'm sure many terrorist acts have been prevented because of survelience. However, we cannot give up our individual freedoms in order to feel protected. You didn't see this scale of "American Infidel" in the past. We were a better country before. We were proud of our country (on the large scale) and there was such a thing as the American Dream. We have deterriorated as a country. There is no "American Dream" unless you county being materialistic, judgemental, and constantly offended. During World War II people gave up luxuries in order to support their country, even when their husbands/sons/brothers/friends were sent fighting. While there is still military support, it is not the same. It is not true support, but rather a support with a side of guilt and disgust to those that oppose it.

With a warrant for any American citizen. Must have an individualized warrant. Mass survallence on Islamic citizens. Ban refugees for 2 years. Push a propaganda campaign for women's rights in the Middle East and stop lying about Islam for political gain or political correctness

@9YKBR8QPeace and Freedom from California answered…8mos

Yes, but make more specific the list of activities that qualify for terrorism charges.

@5RV7C4LRepublicanfrom Illinois  answered…2yrs

Absolutely not this gives big government too much power to spy and pry into citizens private lives. There doesn't need to be a patriot act for the government to protect itself and its citizens. It's called have a pair of balls and let Old Glory fly.

@5TV5LPCGreenfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

I have a brown skin. Anytime I travel on a plane, I have to endure extra security procedures. I am not middle-eastern, I am an all-American racial mix. Think about that.

@5XJ32KLRepublicanfrom Vermont  answered…2yrs

Yes, but with sunset provision requiring Congressional approval every 2 years.

@5S3TZQFRepublicanfrom Georgia  answered…2yrs

The Patriot Act should be subjected to a constitutional test as should be all legislation. It should have a sunset clause.

@5RD54QQDemocratfrom Indiana  answered…2yrs

Yes, but do away with detainment and deportation because it violates due process.

@B434FN7Veteran from Pennsylvania answered…2mos

Only if there is a reason to suspect someone. The general public should not be spied upon.

@B3KZ5X3Constitution from Illinois answered…2mos

Not in it's present form. Another slippery slope. Tyrannical governments can easily abuse this power.

@9ZM3Z6QSocialist from Georgia answered…6mos

Yes, but limit the government's power by lessening and specifying surveillance and criminalization sections

@9XD4PSVLibertarian from Missouri answered…9mos

@9X6W6LLDemocrat from Texas answered…9mos

They should be allowed to monitor foreign financial transactions but not detaining and deporting immigrants just because they're suspicious. Most people here are racist and would definitely take advantage of that.

@9WT3HBPWomen’s Equality from South Carolina answered…10mos

No, while I support using video surveillance in public spaces, Americans should not have to give up personal liberties in our private life.

@B32ZFLPGreen from California answered…3mos

The Patriot Act increases risk of racial profiling and surveilance without probable cause

@B23XMK5Republican from Illinois answered…5mos

No, and pass laws prohibiting government surveillance without probable cause, except in cases where there is a immediate need to save lives

@kitty420Peace and Freedom from Washington answered…6mos

no, no immigrant should be deported just because they are simply suspected of something

@9Z7Q7JGWorking Family from California answered…6mos

No, because this violates people’s right to privacy and individuality.

@9YQFLTSPeace and Freedom from Idaho answered…7mos

Yes, but the sections involving surveillance and criminalization are too broad and should be clarified. There should be a vote for what the government is allowed to survey.

@9Y862D4Democrat from Maryland answered…8mos

@9Y3GWWQConstitution from Nevada answered…8mos

No, and enforce the laws and Fourth Amendment that we have against the Patriot Act

@9XPQVNRRepublican from Georgia answered…9mos

No, and someone should teach the federal government about the Bill of Rights (specifically the 4th Amendment).

@9KP3GFSGreen from Tennessee answered…2yrs

yes and pass strict laws prohibiting government surveillance without probable cause and a warrant

@Alan-RamsayRepublicanfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

Only if the scope of the government’s powers is limited and strict laws are passed prohibiting government surveillance without probable cause and a warrant.

@9JRHH3SWomen’s Equality from California answered…2yrs

@9JBL47NAmerican Solidarity from Utah answered…2yrs

Yes, but the sections involving surveillance and criminalization are too broad. And pass strict laws prohibiting government surveillance without probable cause and a warrant

@9HT8PRSPeace and Freedom from Illinois answered…2yrs

It is outdated and should at least be updated to reflect current sentiment and national security needs.

@9HRTGQ4Republican from Nevada answered…2yrs

It’s a necessary evil. We need to elect better personnel, and reduce bureaucracy.

@9HDMV6TVeteran from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes, but only be able to take up actions against the suspects if they turn out to be a terrorist, and not be able to detain them forever just in case.

@9H78XDFDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

I will only support the patriot act if Donald Trump is tried as a traitor and if that happens I’d like to change my answer on the water boarding question to, “yes”

@9H5GJLMConstitution from Tennessee answered…2yrs

No because what's stopping the government from labeling anyone as a terrorist
