"October 26 marks the second anniversary of the enactment of the USA-PATRIOT Act. I was the only Senator to vote against the Act at the time because I believe that it goes too far in allowing the government to obtain personal information about law-abiding Americans who are not suspected terrorists or spies. Today, I am pleased to be working with Senators from both parties who agree that portions of the law must be changed." Source: Sen. Russ Feingold (Wisconsin) Press Release.

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."

  Thomas Paine, "Dissertation on the First Principles of Government," 1795
