Recently the owner of OpEdNews.Com asked for some positive suggestions on what we would like to see this 110th Congress do. I have some ideas that I would like to share with you, our loyal and supportive readers. I've been thinking about this all day, and even asked my wife to give me her ideas. They turned out to be the same as mine, except for one thing that I didn't think of, but now that she has mentioned it, I'm 100% behind it. I also think that it's important, so let's start with my wonderful wife Sueanne's idea first. Repeal the Patriot Act. It's repugnant and smacks of fascism. Even the name "Patriot Act" is typically what George Bush's Administration does with almost everything. The "Clean Air and Water Act" has nothing to do with clean air or clean water. Almost every environmental bill that this President has been behind ends up being the exact opposite of what it purports to be. I don't believe that the Patriot Act has anything to do with Patriotism. It's just another tool for big government to creep into our everyday lives. The few good ideas that are embedded in the Patriot Act could be left on their own. Americans don't need a complete rule book on government intrusion.
