It’s hard to remain completely cynical about the future of this country when I listen to Senator Russ Feingold. Here’s his closing statement on the Senate floor yesterday, speaking on behalf of the FISA Judiciary Committee bill.
The fact that the administration is so strongly resisting these commonsense protections says a lot. And it ought to give pause to those who are considering opposing it. It is time for Congress to stop being an enabler when it comes to this administration’s indifference to the rule of law, and instead start being a protector of the rights and freedoms of citizens.
I get to vote for this guy!
