So I sent a letter to my congressman July 25, 2013 after viewing that he voted “nay” on House Vote 412 on Limiting N.S.A. Data collection. I essentially told him I was appalled that he voted down the bill and that as my representative in congress I demand his logic in doing so (within reason). I then went on to say as a United States citizen who has a vested interest in both the success of the country and should take pride in his actions, how can he support an group which has both intentionally lied to both yourself and the other citizens of the United States.
Notice the language used, “I share your concerns on this issue.” I understand that he took a middle road by taking time to deliberate and form a possible better solution, but even if that can be determined it entirely over looks the most important point. The N.S.A. lied, under oath, to Congress and the Senate, where the hell are the criminal charges </endrant> and why is my Congressman entirely ignoring that fact. If I came by and peeked in his window he’d probably be rather (a) disturbed and (b) call the police, I can not call the police nor can I call the Congressman who pays the police. All I can do is reach out to my fellow Citizens and hope that they, who pay the Congressmen, to do what is right and defend yourselves (as well as me) from tyranny.
