When Barack Obama Lost My Vote (And How to Get it Back)
When Barack Obama came to Columbus on February 27, 2008 and I heard him promise to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution, he won my vote in the Ohio Primary.
On June 20, 2008, Barack Obama declared his support for H.R. 6304, a bill that enables warrantless wiretapping of American citizens. Barack Obama declared support for searches of your home and your property without your knowledge, without a warrant, anywhere and any time the government wants. Now that Barack Obama supports the gutting of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, Barack Obama has lost my vote. If he wants my vote back, Mr. Obama will have to keep the promise he made to me and thousands of others that February day in Ohio.
Defend the Constitution, Mr. Obama. It’s what you swore you would do.
