Are you aware Clinton, Obama, and McCain sold us all out...?
Yesterday Senator Clinton decided that the FISA bill with the provision granting immunity to the telecom companies for the illegal acts they've been committing with the approval of the Bush White House wasn't important enough to even show up for. Senator Obama voted to keep the immunity provision out of the bill, but left before voting the bill itself down. Senator McCain of course voted to give AT&T and Verizon immunity from litigation for spying on all of it's customers.
How do you feel knowing that the three most likely candidates for President are all willing to side with big business over the best interest of all of their constituents?
For anyone that doesn't think the telecom companies should be held liable for breaking the law as well as the Bush Administration needs to think about the fact that before AT&T and Verizon began spying on all of us after their lawyers decided that it was in their best interest to comply with an Executive Order instead of asking for a warrant and following established case law. They know they willing broke the law. The Administration knows they broke the law. Why should we grant anyone retroactive immunity unless they are willing to provide testimony to prosecute those who gave the order?
If AT&T and Verizon don't want to be sued and potentially lose billions, then turn over all evidence showing they were indeed ordered to spy on us, and who it was that ordered them to do so.
If we can spend taxpayers money to investigate Roger Clemens and the New England Patriots why is no one willing to apporpriate money to investigate this.
This isn't just some sort of conspiracy theory. All parties have acknowledged the fact that every single call, email, text message, or voice mail sent in the last five years has been cataloged by the phone companies and in turn the government.
Why would it be in say AT&T's best interest to comply? Well, if you are trying to push through a merger between to of the largest telecom companies (AT&T and Cingular) against the best interest of the consumer, it helps to have friends in high places.
Saying that Hillary was in Texas is as blatant of a lie as could ever be told... she was in the Washington area all day...

Why is the American public so ignorant? The education system is really corrupt. If they don't know by now that every phone call, every e-mail, every IM, every internet post is being monitored by the FBI, they're living under a rock! When the damn evidence is handed to you, you refuse to believe it?!! Clinton, Obama, McCain are all sell-outs! Ron Paul is the only candidate running with integrity and honesty. He hasn't changed his opinion on any issue, but all the others have.
People need to stop being sheep in the herd and realize what's going on! America isn't a democracy anymore. The people don't have any say in the government anymore. It's a totalitarian state in disguise. We're a world power empire. We have armies all over the world. We spy on our own people. We're worse today than the Soviet Union was in the middle to late 1900s!
By the time you're willing to recognize what's going on in our government, it's going to be too late!!!

I feel that we need to support a candidate which will respect the freedom and privacy of all Americans....Dr. Ron Paul.
Dr. Paul advocates revoking the Patriot Act, Real ID Act, and the Military Commissions Act for the reason that they violate the Constitution.
If we don't support Dr. Paul, then we can expect more of the same and it will only get worse and more intrusive as time goes on. It won't be long before the govt. puts a camera in your bedroom to make sure you are not collaborating with Al-Qaida.

mccain - willing to take a stand against his party (Iraq), but once a decision has been made he is 100% behind it. He is moderate and savvy enough to bring respect back to the presidential office. He doesnt have the same full of **** spin that obama has (Hope - hope-in he wins) or the ruthless power hunger that hillary does. He's sensible and grounded. Not a republican, but go mccain.

We had our chance to throw Bush out in 2004 and we didn't do it. Blaming the telecom companies is like blaming Smith and Wesson for that S.O.B. at Virginia Tech who murdered those students. Blame Bush for being such a paranoid schitzophrenic.

Senator Clinton was campaigning in Texas and therefore couldn't be there. If she gets elected, she plans to do away with the patriot act & all that BS that goes with it. I'm surprised Obama even voted instead of saying his usual "present" line, but then again, he has to start paying back. As for McCain, well, what did you expect?

Only Ron Paul truly cares for freedom. The rest want to wipe their a$$ with our constitution. It's worthless for them.

Why the hell would AT&T and Verizon want to spy on their customers? Can you imagine how many hundreds of thousands of boring conversations from people they don't know about people they don't know - they would have to listen to - to even get a tiny fraction of anything worthwhile ( whatever that would be ) ???????

They all support amnesty too. If that ain't a sell out, I don't know what is.

Good, who cares so long as you do not plan harm to people or this country, then you shouldn't care either
