I just called my rep, Tim Holden, and asked him to support an effort to repeal the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. After all, after this vote today, they might as well do that next. The woman on the other end chuckled, and I said, “Obviously, I’m not happy about his FISA vote today.”
Here’s national ACLU’s press release on it. Here’s the roll call vote to find out where your rep came down (“nays” are for the Constitution and “yeas” are against it). Here is Glenn Greenwald’s reaction.
Surrendering and fearful: that’s the face of the Democratic Party. It’s how they show they’re not weak.
And here’s Countdown’s segment on this from last night, in which law prof Jonathan Turley says that the Dems are doing this because they knew about the warrantless surveillance (and torture, too) years ago. The Dems are co-conspirators.
Of all days to receive a solicitation in the mail from the Democratic National Committee. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, my money goes to the ACLU, Amnesty International USA, and other organizations who actually care about the Constitution.
