We’re being told that there’s not time for debate, no time for dissent, no time for freedom. Is this the America you want for you and your kids? Is there anyone in the Senate besides Rand Paul that hasn’t sold us out?
Breakdown of House Roll Call Vote to Concur to Extend Patriot Act, May 26, 2001.
Several of Paul’s Amendments appear to have failed, with 2 still up for vote. Details at Opencongress.org: Paul gets two amendment votes, but the PATRIOT Act spy powers will remain largely unaffected
More details on Rand Paul’s website and at Daily Paul: SENATE FLOOR: Paul Amendments Tabled.
Essentially it appears that Harry Reid’s fearmongering and anti 4th Amendment rhetoric has all but won over Congress. See video of Rand Paul’s response to Reid’s childish remarks below:

PATRIOT Act Extension Fails, For Now, OpenCongress.org
Read the short article at the link above, written by Donny Shaw, some good information. This issue is still very much alive, contact your representatives.
Kucinich: “…In 2007 the justice department’s inspector General told Congress the FBI may have violated the law or government policy as many as 3000 times since 2003 in the course of secretly collecting telephone, bank and credit card records without warrants, instead using so-called national security letters that give them the ability to demand this information and get it. The Patriot Act is a destructive undermining of the Constitution …How about today we take a stand for the Constitution to say that all Americans should be free from unreasonable search and seizure…”

The news clip below pretty much tells it all.
An arrogant Lincoln Park, Michigan police officer who forgot his job was to protect and to serve hung up on a 17-year-old girl’s 911 call during a medical emergency. Obviously anyone who has just seen their father (after recent brain surgery) fall down and have a seizure would be frantic — especially when the 911 operator doesn’t answer the phone quickly or help you when he does finally answer.
To finish off his power trip, he arrested the girl for “Abusing 911” when she had to physically go down to the police station to get help — a charge he made up on the spot.
