SOAPS Summery

Speakers: Government Officials and Military Affiliates

Occasion: After September 11th, 2001

Audience: Citizens of the United States

Purpose: To persuade the audience that the Patriot Act is equivalent to giving away your freedom

Subject: The Patriot Act


This documentary is a one sided argument about The Patriot Act. It uses Former Government Officials to get the listeners against the Invasion of their privacy. Me personally I was for the Patriot Act, after watching it, I wasn't fully persuaded but I was more critical about the idea of the Government instantly being able to look at all of our accounts.
