Lisa, you did the right thing!

Lisa Murkowski was one of a handful of Republican senators who voted to continue debate on the USA Patriot Act, and against automatic reauthorization of the 16 provisions that are set to expire December 31. This was the right thing to do.

It astonishes me how so-called conservatives often seem so trusting of placing expansive powers in the hands of government.

Tell me, when the government can't tell the difference between a peaceful activist group and a terrorist cell, why on earth would anybody be willing to trust its judgement? No Nukes North, which may be opsterperous, is most certainly not a terrorist group, but guess what? They've been infiltrated and spied on. Now is that a waste of time, money, and effort, or what?
