The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

FISA approved by Senate – Bomb to Democrats

Yesterday the Senate voted to expand the authority of the Government spy/wiretap program for up to the next six years by a HUGE vote of 68 to 29. This is a BIG VICTORY for PRESIDENT BUSH and A STUNNING DEFEAT FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

John McCain voted in favor of the legislation while, curiously to me, Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama did not even vote but each issued a statement later that they opposed the final outcome. In review of the other Senators that from each state Clinton and Obama represent (Durbin D-Il and Schumer D-NY) they both voted against the measure.

Former Democratic Presidential candidates Russ Feingold and Chris Dodd both has been outspoken in their opposition to the bill and of course voted against it.

President Bush has asked the House of Representatives to follow the Senates lead and quickly approve the legislation. The current allowance for this form of protection for our country from the terrorists who want us dead is due to expire Saturday of this week.

I urge you to contact your Congress persons and voice your wishes that this bill be approved and sent to the President without change or delay as soon as possible. The fate of the Country could be in your hands!
