The fact is that I am far from being a "one issue" voter.
However, when I see the Constitution and the inalienable rights (both
enumerated and not enumerated) therein coming under systematic, prolonged, and
powerful attack by persons who, after due and careful consideration I can only
characterize as "closet fascists," I tend to become
I do not know all the facts and all the details of the legislation listed
above, but it does distress me that you have (so far) chosen not
to co-sponsor any of this legislation. Since you have indicated to me in
the past that you do not favor dismantling the bill of rights, and that
you do support the inalienable rights outlined therein, I am at a
loss -- are all of these bills without merit?
I would urge you to re-study these bills and to see if you are able, in good
conscience, to sign-on as a co-sponsor. If so, please do so.
In addition, I would like to commend to your attention the Hostetler(sp?)
amendment which is scheduled to be voted up/down on Monday. It is my impression
that CONGRESS is supposed to pass legislation -- the Smith & Wesson
"settlement" agreement is a horse of a very dark (if not apocalyptic)
color. It is taxation without representation. It is legislation without
legislators. It is -- fascistic. Please support Mr. Hostetler.
Perhaps when we are able to get the Bill of Rights enforced, we will
then be able to address some of the other important issues facing our polity.
Until that time, my priorities shall remain focused on that Bill of Rights.
