Democrats Are Weak On Protecting America

God, Dem's hate to hear this, but it is demonstrably true. As a whole, the Democratic Party is not serious about protecting America from terrorist attacks. Oh sure, they will call for more domestic spending in an attempt to; for example; check every incoming shipping container in the U.S.; a strategy that has no practical chance of succeeding. But ask them to re-up the Patriot Act; an essential tool for law enforcement that has already helped prevent attacks; and they are M.I.A. The House vote yesterday to extend the Patriot Act went as follows: 214 of 214 Republicans voted "Yes". Only 43 of 214 Democrats voted "Yes"!!!!!!! Their reasons focus on things like objecting to a provision in the ACT that would allow the F.B.I. to examine the library activity of suspected terrorists. Remember, 2 of the 9/11 hijackers booked their plane reservations at libraries! Honestly, does anyone trust them to defend us during this time of war??!!
