    None.

    Why not? This has happend already by the Patriot Act of 2001, or would you not agree?

  • Media Law -

    The Patriot Act passed Congress at a time the U.S. was panicked and determined to prevent further terrorist attacks. Many people claim it's violated our right to privacy as guaranteed in our Bill of Rights.

    Our founding fathers did not want the government interfering in the lives of citizens and were adamant about wanting people's freedom of speech preserved. The Patriot Act violates the Bill of Rights.
