Bob Barr on FISA

Released through the Bob Barr Bloggers e-mail list, to which I was recently added:

The House just passed the latest version of the FISA bill and it’s quite possible the bill will go to the Senate next week. It’s no surprise that John McCain supports this bill, which erodes privacy rights and provides telecommunications corporations with legal immunity for violating the Bill of Rights. What has surprised and angered the left is Barack Obama’s support of the bill.

“Given the legitimate threats we face, providing effective intelligence collection tools with appropriate safeguards is too important to delay,” said Obama shortly after the bill passed. “So I support the compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as president, I will carefully monitor the program.”

The Libertarian Party's candidate for president, Bob Barr, released this statement on FISA last Thursday.

Why should anyone be "surprised and angered" at Barack Obama's support of the bill? As if his "pledge" means anything or should I say "something." Doesn't anyone pay any attention anymore?

Obama's message of hope: Trust me and forget the law!

--I wonder if Obama's adoring masses are going to follow him right over the cliff. I wonder what kind of trauma four years of his leadership will bring us. But even if he is elected, I believe America will learn important lessons from the disaster, and never elect such a demogogue again.
