    Most of us were happy that Joe Biden was president Obama's running mate for vice president.
    And our reasons fro being happy about that were based on the facts that.. well we felt that,,, well we knew that....uhm, well darn it doesn't he look like a progressive?
    And , and he doesn't even look like a racist, so he has great qualifications, but 3 years later this factoid comes out.

    It seems that Good Ole Joe, had designed a real constitution shredder, Patriot Act Prequal, before the Oklahoma bombing

    Biden’s proposal probably helped to lay the groundwork for the Bush administration’s Patriot Act.
    The Center for National Securities reported in 1995:

    On February 10, 1995, a counterterrorism bill drafted by the Clinton
    Administration was introduced in the Senate as S. 390 and in the House of
    Representatives as H.R. 896.
    The Clinton bill is a mixture of: provisions eroding constitutional and
    statutory due process protections, selective federalization — on political
    grounds — of state crimes (minus state due process rules), discredited
    ideas from the Reagan and Bush Administrations, and the extension of some of
    the worst elements of crime bills of the recent past.
    The legislation would:
    1. authorize the Justice Department to pick and choose crimes to
    investigate and prosecute based on political beliefs and associations;
    2. repeal the ancient provision barring the U.S. military from civilian
    law enforcement;
    3. expand a pre-trial detention scheme that puts the burden of proof on
    the accused;
    4. loosen the carefully-crafted rules governing federal wiretaps, in
    violation of the Fourth Amendment;
    5. establish special courts that would use secret evidence to order the
    deportation of persons convicted of no crimes, in violation of basic
    principles of due process;
    6. permit permanent detention by the Attorney General of aliens convicted
    of no crimes, with no judicial review;
    7. give the President unreviewable power to criminalize fund-raising for
    lawful activities associated with unpopular causes;
    8. renege on the Administration’s approval in the last Congress of a
    provision to insure that the FBI would not investigate based on First
    Amendment activities; and
    9. resurrect the discredited ideological visa denial provisions of the
    McCarran Walter Act to bar foreign speakers.
