    The government could eavesdrop on telephone calls and privileged conversations between prisoners and their lawyers. The government could prosecute individual citizens for not supporting the War on Terror. The government could violate due process laws if a citizen was deemed to be unpatriotic. The government could require citizens to swear an oath of patriotism if they were deemed a threat to the country. The government could pass legislation without the sufficient number of votes if it was deemed essential to US safety.

    The final bill, the USA PATRIOT Act was introduced into the House on October 23 and incorporated H.R. 2975, S. 1510 and many of the provisions of H.R. 3004 (the Financial Anti-Terrorism Act). It was vehemently opposed by only one Senator, Russ Feingold, who was the only Senator to vote against the bill.

    i thought it was most likely "The government could pass legislation without the sufficient number of votes if it was deemed essential to US safety."

    "The government could eavesdrop on telephone calls and privileged conversations between prisoners and their lawyers" and "The government could violate due process laws if a citizen was deemed to be unpatriotic" are true, except "unpatriotic" is misleading here. It was more if they were deemed a threat for any reason.
