What exactly is the patriot act, and is it government terrorism?
99% of what you have heard about the Patriot Act comes form people who have never read it for themselves.
For example - most of the issues with the Act that people claim are unconstitutiona and 'taking away our freedoms' were nothing more than the application of law enforcement techniques used to fight organized crime being applied to terrorism.
And it also removes the distinction between supporting domestic and international terrorism. Now - any act where you are knowingly assisting, providing financial assistance, false documents, or any kind of material resource to anybody planning to commit a terrorist act is illegal - no matter whether or not the act occurs in the US or not.
Below is a link to the text of the Act. You should be able to scroll down and find the links to any topic that concerns you and read for yourself what the Act says (then compare this with what the people who are relying on rumor as a basis for their opinions say).
It should be fairly easy for you to discover that most of the people criticizing the act have no clue as to what they are talking about.

the french were on their side. not because they liked the amercans but they wanted revenge on britain. the americans forced the british to the seas at yorktown. the british thought they could escape by sea but the french had the best navy at that time and held the sea so the british had nowhere to run
He was a dispatch rider(messenger) carrying correspodence between American Generals in the field. He was considered a spy by the Dragoon Col. because he did not recognize the colonial army as an army and therefore although he was unioformed, he was not.
