All the practices that the Patriot Act name and describe have been going on forever...
and will continue to go on regardless of what laws we have.

The "advantage" of the Patriot Act is codifying them so that (beyond the more nefarious purposes) the occasional case can be prosecuted without having to reveal the actual sources and methods behind what passes for an "investigation".

In the name of fighting terror we have lost much but not from outside enemies.
