Hawkins: Those Evil CONservatives and Their Patriot Act 2?

"The Constitution is a Radical Document...It is the job of Government to rein in people's rights!" - President Bill Clinton on MTV
"I'm a liberal Democrat. I started in Florida politics. I worked for George McGovern. I worked for Jimmy Carter. I've worked for Ted Kennedy, Mario Cuomo. ... But I have to tell you, at this point it's hard to believe that my party, the party that I've belonged to since my great, great grandfather..., has become no longer a party of principles, but has been hijacked by a confederacy of gangsters who need to take power by whatever means and whatever canards they can say." - Pat Caddell, Democratic Party pollster, on Hardball with Chris Mathews, MSNBC, November 27, 2000
I find it absolutely amazing these days when I read about ‘Bush’s’ Patriot Act 2. The story goes something like this: “In an attempt to further abridge the freedoms we enjoy in this nation, Patriot Act 2 has been introduced into the Senate as S. 22 and our rights are being further eroded by it. Blah blah yadda yadda.” There is an as introduced version and a super secret leaked document that many are privy to so they can comment on it. Of course Bush and Ashcroft are being blamed for the whole thing. I have a completely different take on it. First off who created the entire discussion? Who else would do it and why is it that it looks exactly like the same kind of attempted usurpations of the Constitution we saw for eight years. Here is the list of those who introduced the bill in the first place, taken directly from the bill as introduced:
“Mr. Daschle (for himself, Mr. Leahy, Mr. Biden, Mr Kennedy, Mr. Schumer, Mr. Durbin, Mrs. Clinton, Mrs. Murray, Mr. Dayton, Mr. Corzine and Mr. Reed) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.”
Well that is an interesting array of freedom fighters isn’t it? I call them freedom fighters because they have been trying to trash freedom at any cost for years. We have Mrs. Klinton, who we know loves anything that can give her power, even a General at the moment. We have Kennedy, who tried to give our entire military budget to the IMF because they are so much more responsible than we are; never mind the fact that everything they touch miraculously implodes.
So what we have is the gun grabbers initiating the Patriot Act 2 through S.22 on January 7, 2003 and suddenly it gets radically changed in secret and released to the public via ‘certain unnamed sources’?. Like I said what we find in that bill is exactly the same garbage we fought for eight years under “Chinas man in the White House’ Bill Clinton. This is a classic fifth column tactic. These same people are now starting to speak out against this bill and are claiming to be in favor of the document they have been using as a door mat for years (The Constitution). The liberals are still trying to reinvent themselves in our minds.
I do have to make a comment here about those who are claiming this was all created by Bush and company. You are either phony conservatives, not willing to do a little research, communists or synaptically challenged. Which is it? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click on this to my web page where I have been kind enough to cut and paste the appropriate section out of the click on this link for the congressional record of January 9, 2003 - the same date on the entire super secret document currently being smeared on Bush by a bunch of people who claim to be conservatives. If you have taken the time to check out what I have placed here for you, I ask you to now go back and review everything you have gotten from those same ‘CONservative’ sources and start questioning both it and yourself. That is if you can handle it.
To me it is obvious that this Patriot Act is yet another liberal game. They have created a monster and are now trying to gut it and smear the entrails on Bush. Why would they do that? So you won’t bother to look up what I have looked up for you. The list at the top is the list of names that started the legislation in the first place and who put what into it isn’t anything but hearsay or, more probably, out and out lies. It is interesting that the dates on the super secret document actually match up with the date of Daschle introducing it don’t you think? I’m inclined to blame the same old collection of Miscreants and Mistercreants that introduced the bill for this new attempt at attacking our rights.
This Hegelian hoopla is typical made to order left wing poopla!
