John Edwards stands up for the constitution on FISA battle
http://www.crooksandliars.com/2008/01/25/john-edwards-s... /
When it comes to protecting the rule of law, words are not enough. We need action.

Its wrong for your government to spy on you. Thats why Im asking you to join me today in calling on Senate Democrats to filibuster revisions to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that would give retroactive immunity to the giant telecom companies for their role in aiding George W. Bushs illegal eavesdropping on American citizens.

2. Have Clinton or Obama taken a stand on this?
Would be interesting to hear what they say.

3. It is an imperative that they went back to doing their JOBS......
I think their constant campaigning proves to me they aren't that concerned about governing.

How could I cast a vote for them when they are neglecting their oath of office??? :shrug:
