McKeon violated oath of office with NSA spying vote

My representative in Congress, Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, recently voted to allow the NSA to continue its surveillance of ALL electronic communications of ALL Americans.

This NSA spying program is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees ALL Americans the right "to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures."

When he was elected, Rep. Mckeon swore on the Bible to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

By voting to continue the illegal NSA domestic spying program, Rep. McKeon has violated his oath of office.

Why would Rep. McKeon deliberately violate his oath of office? Analysis of the vote reveals that members of the House who voted to allow the NSA spy program to continue received double the amount of contributions from the defense industry as did members who voted to end the spy program.

And my representative, the Honorable Howard McKeon, is No. 1 on the list of those who have received campaign contributions from the defense industry — with a current total of $526,600.

Rep. McKeon has violated his oath of office and he has betrayed the voters who elected him. Anyone who thinks that we will be safer if we allow our government to spy on us has no knowledge of history.
