Don't tread on me
Legislation. There is a bill before the Senate today. It will take away some of my freedom in the name of "fighting terrorism".
The house has voted. My representative is a lame duck nutcase.
My senators are little better. However, I feel duty bound to try.
I sent the following message:
There is a bill going for a vote today that will erode our liberties under the guise of fighting terrorism. While i recognize the importance of fighting terror, Our freedoms are also important.
I also feel that we are too good a country to descend to the use of torture. When we do this, we are no better than those that we fight.
The protection of habeus corpus is important. When we suspend this freedom for an alleged terrorist, It is one step away from suspending it for me.
I urge you to vote against this bill
