News keeps pouring in about the lengths the government has taken to gather information in the name of national security, with the most recent concern focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of phone call and Internet usage records for millions of Americans.

Government officials say the measures are needed to combat terrorism. As more news agencies report about the governments’ efforts, more and more Americans seem to be feeling less comfortable with the long arm of the Patriot Act.

So, where you draw the line between national security and personal freedoms?
