Support Tom Allen and His Stand For the Rule of Law

It’s important that we recognize the good work of members of the U.S. House of Representatives who did the right thing, and voted against H.R. 6304, the FISA Amendments Act. One of these responsible members of Congress is Tom Allen, who made the following statement before casting his vote:

“Neither the government nor large telecommunications corporations are above the law; everyone must be held accountable. This ‘compromise’ fails to hold either the Bush Administration or the telecommunications companies to the same standards that apply to other Americans.”

We need more people in Congress who understand what it means when they take the Oath of Office: That they’re supposed to work to uphold and defend the Constitution, not destroy it for the sake of political pandering at election time.

Representative Allen is not running for re-election to the House of Representatives. He is, however, running for election to the United States Senate, to replace incumbent Republican Susan Collins. Collins claims to be a centrist, but her legislative scorecard could not be more clear: Her right wing ranking is twice as high as her progressive ranking.

Senator Collins plans to attack the freedoms guaranteed us by the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. Collins won’t stay true to the Oath of Office. She plans to vote for the FISA Amendements Act. Congressman Allen, on the other hand, has shown that he will not abandon his principles.

Let’s show our support for Tom Allen as he campaigns to represent Maine in the United States Senate.
