As your congressman, I will fight legislation that seeks to infringe on our constitutional rights, particularly our right to bear arms and our right to be free of unreasonable search and seizures.
I will advocate a congressional review of the efficacy of the patriot act, including the unnecessarily intrusive requirements of the transportation safety administration.
I will seek to abolish warrantless seizures and surveillance of American citizens.
I will call for congressional oversight of our FISA courts.
