Letter to the Editor
With the fiscal cliff looming and senators filibustering everything you would think from listening to the news that noting is being passed through Congress. But that isn’t the case. As it turns out on Friday the Senate passed an extension of the FISA act to continue to allow the government to spy in US citizens without a warrant or any form of constitutional oversight. Even the Congress can’t find out what’s going on. This was something they started after 9/11 and even though Bin Laden is dead they still seem to need to have secret laws and a secret police force that is above the law to illegally spy on us.
Sure shows you where their priorities are. Obama is as bad as Bush when it comes to following the Constitution. Only Rand Paul, Ron Wyden and a handful of other Democrats opposed it. Amazing how some things just sail through while everything else is impossible.
