“With very little time left on the clock to save the Patriot Act from expiring on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had to work some procedural gymnastics to get past Sen. Rand Paul's many objections (and amendments), as well as a number of members in his own party. Sen. Reid basically killed his current bill and and opted to take up a House small business bill (it's in a form that's considered filibuster-proof as far as starting debate goes). Neither Rand Paul nor anyone else can object to this. Reid then amended the House bill with the entire text of the Patriot Act extension.” This type of behavior should be illegal. Clearly, this is not the sort of behavior that a governing body interested in adhering to the will of the people would engage in. There is no interest in representing the people. Revolution IS the only solution. Please, please, please stop giving them money.
