Patriot Act’s fate now in Rand Paul’s hands

The Senate is scheduled to hold a rare Sunday evening vote

Rand Paul has the future of the Patriot Act in the palm of his hand.

The Senate is scheduled to hold a rare Sunday evening vote on three Patriot Act provisions mere hours before they expire at midnight. The late hour — and lack of a clean path forward — means any single senator has an undue amount of leverage to gum up the works.

After staking his reputation on fighting the National Security Agency (NSA) to the bitter end, the Kentucky Republican and White House contender now finds himself with the best chance yet to hobble it.

On Saturday morning, he pledged to take no prisoners.

“Tomorrow, I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program,” he said in a statement distributed by his presidential campaign.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
