Wyden is a Democratic Senator from my home state of Oregon. We're pretty lucky here that our senators (Wyden & Merkley) sometimes vote on the side of Liberty and against the wars. Not always, but sometimes. I just got an email from Merkley about how he voted against FISA (warrantless electronic spying) along with only 22 other senators. I write and call them both frequently to encourage them to support 'Liberty and Justice' votes, and they are both very responsive and have been (I believe) moving more towards Liberty (perhaps as a result of activism in Oregon?)
Since Oregon will probably never elect a Libertarian Senator, I guess we have to work with what we've got!
