Feingold: The one vote for us, not for the patriot act.

On February 2, 2006, Senator Feingold was again the lone senator to vote against extension of the US Patriot Act, this time for five weeks.

To fill out an online form & give him support for his lone-vote go here:

Feel free to post this to your journal, too: it's good to get word back when our national representatives are standing up & representing us, especially against such pressures!
"I've seen some strange things in my life, but I cannot describe the feeling I had, sitting on the House floor during Tuesday's State of the Union speech, listening to the President assert that his executive power is, basically, absolute, and watching several members of Congress stand up and cheer him on.

It was surreal and disrespectful to our system of government and to the oath that as elected officials we have all sworn to uphold. Cheering? Clapping? Applause? All for violating the law?"
-- US Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), on February 2, 2006
