Weak sisters

Congress, on Friday, approved warrantless wiretapping. Which is great and all because that was one of the issues that Democrats used in 2006. An issue which created broad support for Democrats across the country, mostly because people don't like the government eavesdropping without probable cause and, you know, a warrant. Which Bush was doing illegally. Now, Congress has made it legal. Probably not Constitutional, but legal.

How DID this happen? Well, let's just say the Republicans continued to vote to make '1984' the real world and a few Democrats helped that along. Democrats like Chet Edwards and Nick Lampson who voted for the bill, ostensibly, because they are from conservative districts and their constituents demanded it. Demanded that the government be GIVEN unprecedented authority to tap your phones and listen into your conversations. Yeah, I'm totally buying that.

This is about Bush's ridiculous failure in the war on terror and a LOT of Republicans and a few Democrats too scared of negative advertising. Everyone already knows that Bush is a fuckup. Everyone knows that He's failed abysmally. What they didn't know was just how willing the Congress would be to cave in and surrender OUR rights to an out of control executive.

You were scared, Chet and Nick, and you got bad advice from staffers who are obviously just as out of touch with reality as the President. That makes you weak sisters. Here's to hoping you both have opponents in the primary that actually believe in the Constitution. You're not only bad Democrats, you're bad Americans. You've betrayed your constituents and the millions who've fought to protect and defend this country and it's Constitution. I would expect this from a Republican, but not from a Democrat.

Thank you. Now we need to STOP saying that Chet Edwards is a Democrat, and find a REAL Democrat to run against him for District 17. One that respects the constitution.

I agree. I would even go so far as to support a Republican. Parties be damned, the Constitution IS our country.
