As a resident of Minnesota I wasn’t surprised at all that the ignoramus and mentally deficient Michele Bachmann voted to continue trampling on the 4th amendment and keep the NSA spying on U.S. citizens. It’s completely keeping in character for this whack job. I also wasn’t surprised that all Minnesota Republican representatives did the same. I was, however, surprised and disappointed that democratic representative Collin Peterson voted with the conservatives.
Betty McCollum, Rick Nolan, Tim Walz and Keith Ellison all voted for defunding the NSA’s domestic spying program. John Kline, Erik Paulsen, Collin Peterson and Michele Bachmann all voted against it.
It appears that as long as Peterson’s famers are well subsidized he’s ok with the government spying on law abbiding citizens. George Orwell would be proud.
What’s next? Web firms forced to give the Feds our account passwords. No doubt Peterson and his Minnesota Republican cohorts will jump right on board that train.
