In Passing

Tell me again how Republicans are different from Democrats

It Doesn’t Matter WHO You Vote For  Dept

The Washington Post:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell...
Why does it always seem that any story beginning with ‘‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’’ turns out to be bad news for liberty?
...introduced a bill Tuesday night to extend through 2020 a controversial surveillance authority under the Patriot Act.

The move comes as a bipartisan group of lawmakers in both chambers is preparing legislation to scale back the government’s spying powers under Section 215 of the Patriot Act.
Mitch: ‘‘Well, we cant have that!’’
It puts McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the bill’s co-sponsor, squarely on the side of advocates of the National Security Agency’s continued ability to collect millions of Americans’ phone records each day in the hunt for clues of terrorist activity.
I’ll believe that Republicans are a party of small, unintrusive government when they start acting like a party of small, unintrusive government.
