Feet to the fire time
Hey, you either believe in this Constitution shit, or you don't.
Right now it's unclear how presidential candidates Clinton and Obama feel about the abridgment of Constitutional freedoms dictated by FISA. What's more disturbing is that neither will speak directly to the unconstitutional assignment of ex post facto immunity to telecom companies who broke the law.
I've always heard that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Crimes committed under the veil of "patriotic duty" are crimes nonetheless.
Several important bloggers are urging us to call the offices of Clinton and Obama to make them take a stand on FISA. Take a few minutes and make a call.
