I am truly disappointed in your recent FISA vote that steals the freedom to have our day in court and to maintain privacy unless there is probable cause. It also has given away chances to uncover the crimes surely committed by this criminal administration. By this vote you have abetted these crimes and neither I nor my readers will forget this abdication of congressional duty at election times in the future.
This vote also plays into the hands of the most incompetent president of all time and gives him further dictatorial power that surely will be abused as all given/stolen powers before have been.
This country is on the verge of having all power in one branch: the executive. The courts have been rigged by congressional approval of obviously biased and partisan candidates. This also applies to the Attorney General as well. Congress has the well deserved single digit approval rating and I am surprised that it is so high.
Somehow taking our Constitutional rights away to save us because someone thinks Osama Bin Laden might also do so somehow does not make even a minute amount of sense.
This vote represents a black day in our history. One more step toward a fascist dictatorship. In the seventies we thought the Soviet Union was so horrible for doing similar things to their citizens. I never thought ten years ago that I would be concerned about loss of checks and balances and concerned about martial law and a mad man president getting his sociopatic way on almost every issue and even the possibility of MY country being under dictatorial rule with political prisons and a secret police.
Your vote on this has one positive value as it will make it much easier to decide on my votes and what I suggest to my readers.
