Obama was attacked on the onset of his presidency and the bashing has not stopped.
So you would rather sit quietly by and let Obama continue to thread the Constitution? Just because Bush did it then doesn't make it any less wrong under Obama. Is it more about your guy than the Constitution for you? Really? Do you care so little for your liberty, freedom and rights?

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Hope you posted this when the Patriot Act passed.

Sad? Who? Me?
I served in the armed forces and defended our Constitution, and would again if the situation arose.

I am not a congressman. I do care about our Constitution.

Your next line is ????

I reiterate, I do not care if the DOJ reads my emails, however, I would find it questionable and would object to YOU reading them if you are not any type of official.

I say again, I have nothing to hide: meaning, if you're not a terrorist, or a suspected terrorist and have done nothing illegal, you have nothing to fear.
