Open Letters to Representatives Chaffetz and Matheson about their votes supporting legalized kidnapping

...

Dear Representatives Chaffetz and Matheson, It is Memorial Day weekend. I am angered. You cast a troop-dishonoring vote against the Smith-Amash Amendment that would end kidnapping. You euphemistically call it “indefinite detention”. The vote came a day AFTER a federal judge placed an injunction on the practice based on First AND Fifth Amendments grounds! Don’t…

Thank you, Rep. Bishop, for supporting the Smith-Amash Amendment to the 2013 NDAA

Dear Representative Bishop, Thank you for supporting the Smith-Amash Amendment to the 2013 NDAA.

By…

Tell Hatch, Lee, Bishop to vote NO on the Anti-American NDAA Conference Report

...

You and I both know that freedom is not free.  Its price cannot be measured in dollars – and its defense requires eternal vigilance. On December 1, the U.S. Senate passed S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), by a vote of 93-7. A slightly different NDAA, H.R. 1540, had already passed the U.S. House in May,…
