Senator Russell Feingold (D-WI) is one of my heroes.

Statement of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold on the Patriot Act Reauthorization Bill Introduced in the Senate Today

July 13, 2005

"I am disappointed that Senators Specter and Feinstein have introduced their Patriot Act reauthorization bill today without the additional meaningful fixes that members on both sides of the aisle believe are necessary to protect our freedoms. In its current form, I cannot support this bill, but I hope we can work together to improve the legislation in the coming weeks."

Limiting freedom to try to make us safer from the evildoers doesn't make us any safer.  It just makes us less free.  Who wants that?

Russ Feingold is a true patriot, and I am very proud to have him as my Senator.
