QUESTION
what are some examples of civil disobedience that i can do against the PATRIOT act?
it is for a english essay, im not really going to do this, but i need some examples of civil disobedience that i would do if I was against th patriot act..which i am btw. please ive examples and also explain it like why would you do those things, whyu do you feel so strongly about it? 10 points to whoever answers.

ANSWER
There are sixteen sections of the Patriot act.

You need to do some research and find out what the act says (as opposed to what people _think_ it says).

Much of the complaints about a loss of civil liberties is based on urban myth and a distortion of what the act says.

And have you noticed that nobody who is telling you how evil the patriot act is can _quote_ the sections of the act they are complaining about?

Here are some of the things you can protest that none of you are probably aware are even in the Act:

Increased funding for research into new law-enforcement and emergency medical technologies.

Funding grants that made the radios of all emergency response agencies compatible with each other.

Grants for the training of volunteer emergency responders to serve their local communities in time of disaster.

Reforms to information sharing practices between federal and local law enforcement.

Reforms to improve the professionalism of airport security screeners.

Even the anti-terrorism laws are not as draconian as the critics claim.
