Brad Miller, One of The Good Guys

Vote Fix Is In
The House of Representatives of The United States Of America voted by a much-too-wide majority in favor of HR 6304. Next week the bill will most likely be passed in the Senate and sent to Bush to be signed into law. This bill allows the president to legally authorize physical searches without a warrant. This bill allows the president to authorize wiretapping with absolutely no real judicial oversight. This bill essentially gives the executive branch of government free reign to do anything they want to do, without fear of any judicial consequences whatsoever.
More than 100 democrats voted in favor of the bill. Here in North Carolina, 4 of the 7 Democrat Representatives voted for it, and only 3 voted against. The Representative for my district is Brad Miller. That’s him on the right. He’s one of the good guys. He voted against HR 6304. From all of us: Thanks, Brad. I’m one of those that voted for you last time around, and with votes like this on your record, I’ll be there with your name in my mind next time. As a matter of fact, drop me an email when you need some campaigning done around Reidsville. I will be there for you.
The other NC Representatives that had the courage to stand up for a free America were Melvin Watt and David Price. I can’t thank you guys enough. When it’s time, just drop me an email and I’ll work for your campaign, too. I want people like you all over the District, and I’ll get off my butt to help you make it happen.
Too Many Checks, Not Enough Balances
As for the rest of the North Carolina democrats, who the hell are you people? What is your real reason for being a Representative? Do you care about us at all? Can you look more than a few months into the future? Can you see more than a few years into the past? Have you forgotten what inevitably happens to governments that ignore the well-being of its people? Have you received so many checks that your sense of justice is out of balance? Has the taste of influence, prestige and money numbed you to the responsibilities you have to uphold the Constitution? That is, after all, your job.
It’s the only job you have. Uphold the Constitution. Did you read the
bull bill? I did. It destroys the 4th amendment completely. It negates the power of our entire Judicial branch of government. It abrogates all power in the Legislative and Judicial branches to the Executive. It finally clears the way for America to become a police state.
As a citizen, I reject the passing of this bill. I am certain that the majority of citizens agree with me that this bill, as law, is just wrong. It goes against everything I have ever been taught about how our nation works. It removes all checks and balances from the system at the president’s whim. It does not allow us to even question the president about anything at all. It does, in fact, create a de facto totalitarian type of rule for the USA. Passage of this bill is therefore illegal, in my opinion.
Here is a list of the NC Representatives who voted in favor of HR 6304. Do them a favor and click their names or call their phones. Let them know how pleased you are the powers of the president are now limitless. Let them know how grateful you are that with this bill becoming law, even they can look forward to warrantless searches, wiretapped phone calls and intercepted emails and instant messages. Let them know how proud you are to have them serving you. Let them know they can count on you to vote in this election and the next and the next. Let them know you will not forget their name, or what they have done
for to you today.
