Jermo: I have to agree and close this thread.
Your correct! Thanks for pointing what is probably obvious to some.
Sorry Jennifer. I trust you can come up with a new thread of a related topic, but this is too …political.
If you look at the Sugar act of 1762, and the Patriot Act (And Bush’s “Snoop” act" of 2001, there are some alarming similarities.
Sugar act - 1962, directly after the French and Indian War
Patriot & Snoop act - 2001, directly after 9/11
The Sugar Act (along with the Stamp Act and the Tea Act) directly caused the American revolution. The Patriot act killed some of the rights off. Especially the 4th ammendment.
First of all, what’s so alarming about cracking down on illegal immigration?
Secondly, I’m not sure if you realized this, but the US Postal service already had that so-called “snooping” system in place long before this act. The government just decided to use it in other fields also.
I’m not saying it is all alarming, I’m just listing the act in it’s entirety.
