Dennis Kucinich: It's time for our Party to show some backbone. It's time to stand for the repeal of the Patriot Act. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, I spoke against it, I voted against it, and I introduced legislation for its repeal. In campaigning across America, it's unmistakably clear that there is an almost universal rejection of the Patriot Act." Democrats can strengthen the Party's commitment to basic civil liberties by standing for the repeal of the Patriot Act and by blocking the government's attempt to continue pursuing a policy of unreasonable search and seizure, of snooping into the private lives of our citizens, and of violating our Constitutional rights and freedoms...It is wrong for the United States government to ask our citizens to defend our country and then to ignore and violate the very rights we are called upon to defend. Unfortunately, the rest of his party remains to the right of Grover Norquist on this one.
