My email to Senator Mark Pryor on June 19, 2013:
I pray that you not vote for the current amnesty bill in the senate. Common sense must prevail in your mind. This is not an opinion based on race. It’s common sense not to allow multi-millions of immigrants when your chamber votes out a permanent security barrier at the southern border.
Mr. Cotton, I am sickened by the multiple scandals that are sweeping the Barack Obama administration. Several of Mr. Obama’s political appointees have shown a complete disregard for the rule of law and the inability to tell the truth in public and in hearings held by Congress. From the situation that occurred in Benghazi, Libya; to the DOJ spying on journalists; the IRS targeting citizens groups because of their political beliefs; and now the NSA keeping records on millions of Americans cellular phone data. Perhaps just one of these scandals would have caused our founding fathers to revolt. All put together; I believe John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington would say that their American experiment has failed. I feel that the experiment has failed me and my fellow Americans. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are the maxims our rights were built on. Liberty is no longer a right our government protects or believes the American people should be privileged
to. My sentiments are not unique or singular. My friends and several professional colleagues share my feelings about the loss of our liberties. Mr. Cotton, I ask that you use all your knowledge and ability as a congressman to investigate, hold accountable and correct the loss of liberties the federal government has taken away from your constituents and the people of the United States of America. Thank you.
Scandal after scandal has fired up the last several months regarding Barack Obama and the people he has hired to run our government.
On June 5th 2013, a leak came out about the NSA receiving a broad search warrant from a FISA court to obtain millions of Verizon Wireless customers private cellular data beginning in April 2013 and ending in July 2013.
As an active police officer, I can’t fathom presenting a search warrant to a judge, or a subpoena to a prosecutor to obtain cell phone records of multiple people without showing probable cause of a crime. Not to mention asking for an active warrant or subpoena that continues for months after the initial request for private, personal information. AT&T, Sprint and other carriers probably have been, are, or will hand over the private cellular data of millions more.
As an American and a sworn defender of the constitutions of my state and of the United States of America, I am shocked and appalled by the audacity of the NSA and the judge who authorized the action.
I call for my congressmen to begin an investigation into this practice. I also call for congress to immediately repeal the Patriot Act as it opened the door to this unconstitutional spying on the citizens of the United States of America.
