The Patriot Act

Congress is having some trouble renewing the Patriot Act in its present form, which makes today's email from The Federalist Patriot very timely:

The Federalist Patriot
Founders' Quote Daily

"Liberty is not to be enjoyed, indeed it cannot exist, without the habits of just subordination; it consists, not so much in removing all restraint from the orderly, as in imposing it on the violent."

-- Fisher Ames (Essay on Equality, 15 December 1801)
