Tom Udall makes lots of gushing statements about voting against the Patriot Act, a George Bush contrivance that suspended the Bill of Rights in the name of keeping us safe from terrorism. He was good to vote against that monstrosity.
However, Tom Udall voted for the last several National Defense Authorization Acts which were even worse than Bush’s fiasco. President Obama signed the bills into law and even he said he shouldn’t have done it, but did it anyway.
What are we supposed to think about a representative who votes “yes” for a bill that does the following?
“NDAA greatly expands the power and scope of the Federal government to fight its War on Terror, including codifying into law the indefinite detention of terrorism suspects without trial. Under the new law the military has the power to carry out domestic anti-terrorism operations on U.S. soil …”
“NDAA helps preserve the status quo established in the Patriot Act …”
So, Tom Udall votes against a bill to protect us and we are supposed to applaud. Then, he votes for a worse bill that doesn’t protect us and preserve our rights under a different President?
It is clear that Tom Udall votes his party line always and clear that his principles are murky.
If you think Tom Udall believes in protecting your rights as a citizen, ask him about NDAA.
He won’t have an answer to answer your question. He will give you an answer but we can guarantee it won’t please you.
It isn’t funny when people get put on terrorism lists just because they protest government policies.
