    rational consideration.

    The USAPATRIOT Act (Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism) with its plethora of INappropriate "tools" has permitted our government to become much more violent and abusive with no accountability.

    Splitting non-existent hairs over whether or not enhanced interrogation is torture is a question that has only one answer.  It's repulsive that it is even an acceptable "discussion" in our country.  WWII war criminals were executed, with blessings by the USA, for committing the very same acts.

    Our government has become much more openly, blatantly violent in the last 11 years.  Militarization of municipal law enforcement is just one example.
