Straight from the mouth of Alaska’s Representative for Life:
“I think the Patriot Act was not really thought out,” Young said Friday while meeting with reporters. “I’m very concerned that, in our desire for security and our enthusiasm for pursuing supposedly terrorists, that sometimes we might be on the verge of giving up the freedoms which we’re trying to protect.” [Source]
Hm, ya think? I thought the people we elected were supposed to think about more than just today. Like how decisions made today will effect “tomorrow.” Silly me.
