Many provisions of the PATRIOT Act are viewed by some as too great an expansion of government power, which could violate the constitutional rights of American citizens. The PATRIOT Act has spurred much debate concerning the balance between freedom and security in America. Proponents of the act support the need for expanded law enforcement with expanded powers to fight terrorism. Opponents cite the potential for abuses of rights that could occur under the provisions of the act. Which do you believe to be true? Do you feel there should be more rules put in place and what would you recommend? Or what parts of the PATRIOT Act would you remove to reduce the governments power?
