Critique Requested on Open Letter to Representative Vicky HartzlerSubmitted by bear on Tue, 05/22/2012 - 14:38
I plan on sending this to my rep as well as our local paper. Your critique is welcome and requested.
Open Letter to Representative Vicky Hartzler,
It is with fear and trembling that I write you concerning your YAE vote on HR 4310 National Defense Authorization Act for 2013 To authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2013 for military activities of
the Department of Defense, to prescribe military personnel strengths
for fiscal year 2013, and for other purposes.
Did you, or did you not take an oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States?
What rationale did you use to vote YEA on the referenced bill that allows for the indefinite detention by the military of US citizens in direct opposition to the 4th and 5th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States?
You had the opportunity to support the
SMITH-AMASH amendment, which in clear language assured the people of the United States that, indefinite detention does not apply to them. However, you voted NAY on that amendment. Why did you vote NAY?
I wrote you earlier this year to address my dismay at the rapid deterioration of the Bill of Rights due to the War on Terror and your YEA votes associated with that deterioration. I am starting to wonder exactly who are the terrorists? Why are the people of the United States being left vulnerable to the terror of indefinite military detention by their own government?
You are supposed to represent my best interests. I will not vote for you when your term is up. It is evident to me that you do not represent my certain unalienable natural born rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. I will be seeking a liberty minded candidate when your term is up, and will support and campaign for that individual and will speak out against you and the tyranny you represent.
