Whether you think him hero or traitor, Snowden paid a terrible price by exposing NSA spying on U.S. Citizens without warrants. Without respect to how history will judge him, we owe him a debt of gratitude for exposing unconstitutional, egregious acts of a government that has become too big.
Yesterday, the House voted on an amendment to a defense appropriations bill by Justin Amash (R-MI) that would have severely restricted NSA activities. The amendment was defeated 217-205.
Our Congressman Ralph M. Hall (R-TX CD-4) voted FOR the amendment. By his vote he was upholding the Fourth Amendment.
