This will be short, but what I have to say is extremely important. The Senate is scheduled to vote today in the President’s authority to circumvent the rule of law by taking the court case that is reviewing the illegal wiretapping of Americans, and is trying to pass legislation that will take the issue out of the courts and pass a law that gives the telecom industries immunity for wiretapping Americans without a warrant. This is a blatant attempt to circumvent the rule of law.
Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn) is threatening to filibuster this in the Senate. Harry Reid, the Senate Majority leader has come out in favor of supporting the President’s law. If the Senate votes for cloture, this will effectively stop Sen. Dodd from filibustering the bill by limiting the debate to 30 hours. We must write to our elected officials and demand no vote of cloture and allow Sen. Dodd to attempt to stop this assault on our basic rights under our Constitution. This must be done immediately! Make your voices heard and stop this nation’s march to a dictatorship of the executive branch and demand that the President follow the rule of law. This is a basic right we are letting Bush usurp with collaboration by the Democrats. Please sign the petition to your Senators by clicking the appropriate parts of this article!
That’s the way I see it.
