Vote No

Vote No sign, Marianas District Covenant campaignMany members of Congress, including those supported by my friends in the Tea Party, maintain their goal is to get rid of big government, get government out of their lives. Well, how about the PATRIOT Act, which has the broadest reach and the deepest reach of government into our daily lives? Shouldn't we be thinking about that? Some want to get government out of healthcare, some want to get government out of retirement security. How about getting government out of people's bedrooms, out of people's financial records, out of people's medical records? Vote no on extending the PATRIOT Act.

-- Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), speaking to the House of Representatives before a vote on extending provisions of the Patriot Act, 8 February 2011
