I am sure both of my Senators voted to extend and I must say that I would fail to vote for them if they didn't. I want that thing maintained since it has been there so long and very few of my rights have been violated. In fact, I can't think of one at all. Yes, it could have happened but never did, at least to me or anybody else I know.

Sorry fellows but I just think this way.

Why it did little.....but gave the Govt to much power and they abused it at all levels. Most of the abuse was form the lower level law enforcement....

One of our Utah guys voted no! A Tea Party guy that actually voted for smaller government on a non finance issue, I am shocked!
