    Using the full force of the Patriot Act against the domestic terrorist groups that support this kind of activity would have two benefits.

    First, the broad surveillance and property seizure provisions of the law would be effective weapons in the fight to stop their criminal activity.

    Second, using the law against against right wing groups might make Republican members of Congress reconsider whether they want such aggressive legislation in the first place.

    I think much of the Patriot Act should be repealed, however as long as it's there we might as well use it.  Letting it sit on the shelf for the next Republican administration to abuse accomplishes nothing.
