A note on the PATRIOT Act

Just a note on the agreement in the House and Senate tonight to extend the PATRIOT Act for one month: Considering the present political circumstances, this was a very wise move. Better to extend the Act for a month (it expires February 3rd) and look for ways to protect our liberties than to extend the Act permanently without any serious contemplation about the permanent consequences of this law.

I would be willing to accept a law in which the liberties of the American people are fully protected, and if this arrangement leads to that, this could turn out to be a positive compromise.

If the Act should expire in the end, at least liberty would survive.
