Some will argue that not being attacked for 7 years now is justification for the Patriot Act. Maybe so, but there is also evidence that the act is being used for a wide scope of crimes and not just terrorism. The government has used the sneak and peak provisions to guard against the ultimate evil that is cock fighting. This is the problem with giving massive, centralized government power: They abuse it. They abuse it so often that the abuse becomes routine and we take it for granted.
