I WAS WRONG! I'VE BEEN WRONG ABOUT EVERYTHING! I've been a pathetic, benighted, unAmerican fool, incapable of comprehending what's really good for freedom and for America.
But Sen. Orrin Hatch -- oh, thank you, blessed Senator! -- has set me straight. And maybe his wisdom will rend the veil from your eyes, as well:
Nothing in the Patriot Act threatens our cherished Bill of Rights. In fact, the act is expressly designed to enhance our nation's fundamental freedoms. Moreover, despite the steady drumbeat of opposition by some groups, none of them has cited one instance of abuse against our constitutional rights, nor one shred of evidence to contradict the fact that these tools have saved American lives by preventing terrorist attacks against our people.
If you crave further enlightenment, seek ye the Words of Holy Hatch here.
