U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, representing the second district in Oregon (my district), voted against the funding amendment of a U.S. House vote recently.

Out of five Oregon representatives, his was the only no vote.

This was effectively a vote to continue NSA surveillance of American citizens in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

If you value our Constitution, and don’t appreciate its subversion by our elected officials, contact Walden and let him know how you feel.

We are ruled by apathy; only if you get involved can we make a difference.
