    it changes things for me, as I don't know if I can continue to support the democratic party.  It should change things her at Daily Kos. This is not some farm bill that can be changed in 6 mos. This is the 4th Amendment.

    There needs to be a concerted effort to take down Pelosi, Hoyer, and the other dems behind this bill.  Not a week long series of diaries, but a permanent reminder on the front page, and from front pagers, encouraging us to rid ourselves of this group of traitors.  Obama needs to be questioned on how, as president, he will use this bill - or is he willing to change it?  It seems like we could find better phone carriers than the ones who now have immunity to tap our phones as needed.

    We will lost big today. Bush, the war criminal, now has almost every thing he asked for (Opening lands to drilling is next) and he gets off with immunity and no impeachment. To me it was the last straw in a series of efforts to dismantle the constitution. What is this blog for if not for sustaining this "piece of paper."

    If we cannot elect this man, we don't deserve him.

      I can't stand for this. Period. It's non-negotiable.

      I'll work to get rid of these bastards, but it won't be in the name of a Democratic Party that stood by idly, without comment, without a fight.

      I won't give money, I won't actively support. This is the last straw.

      Just contacted the local city clerk and asked them to send me a registration card so I can change my party affiliation from Democrat (which I have been for over 32 years) to Independent.  I may work for and give money to a progressive Dem who is willing to stand up to this country's corporate cabal, but no more rubber-stamp support for the Democratic Party for me.  I'm done.

        After 40 years of voting stictly democratic. This was the last straw.

        I will vote for Obama. That is all I can promise at this point.

        If we cannot elect this man, we don't deserve him.
