Senator McConnell needs to learn how to govern & realize that things shouldn’t be renewed without debate

Certain provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire at midnight & the Senate is deadlocked on what to do.  With surveillance & metadata collection on the table we have government officials that want to pass these past successful measures, without taking into account the cost to American freedom & privacy.  Yet they have stopped attacks.  It’s a conundrum.

However; is it really a good idea to stop all attacks at the expense of our freedoms?  Hiding the facts, the who’s & what’s of what is attempting to attack us?  Hoping that we won’t blame the Muslim world & the medieval foreign cultures.

McConnell needs to stop insisting that it’s either his way or the highway.  There’s nothing wrong with letting the provisions expire.  They should be debated & either put back in place, modified; or scrapped altogether.  Not automatically renewed in thought & action.
