Regrettably, Senator Burr voted for the 2012 NDAA. The ”form letter” I received from his office dated January 4, 2012 has both inaccuracies, and misrepresentations of the facts. I’m not sure if his office generated the content of this ’form letter,’ or if it was developed by some committee.
Regardless, the facts, the Constitution, his oath of office, and his vote for the 2012 NDAA cannot be reconciled. We are preparing a response, which we will share for with his office and our fellow citizens in North Carolina.
Many of you have heard (and/or voiced) concerns over the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA). Patriot Coalition and Oath Keepers have prepared (and released today) resolutions for state legislators and sheriffs to address this is from the state and local level. Two days ago, Patriot Coalition general counsel Richard D. Fry, a constitutional attorney, and I participated in the TPP state coordinators conference call to discuss the NDAA. The resolutions we discussed are now available here:
ALSO, Patriot Coalition general counsel Richard Fry is preparing a lawsuit in defense of Roger Ewing, a veteran who heads the ”Big First Tea Party,” a TPP partner in Hays, Kansas, who is being denied use of the taxpayer-funded public library to teach the Constitution because of several stated reasons by the library board of directors and city attorney which are clear violations of state law, library policy, and Mr. Ewing’s 1st Amendment Rights. There’s a bunch of information about this and other efforts on the Patriot Coalition Blog at: http://blog.patriotcoalition.com
