It is true that a return to constitutional rights might mean some added risk. That is the price of freedom. It is hard to articulate but if you ever visit a place without freedom you realize that it is worth something, even sacrefice.

Don't give it up for a delusion of security.

The House padded out the extension. Only 4 Repuglicons voted against it. Pearce was not one of them
Some Blue Dog Dems dishonored the Bill of Rights by voting for it.

Honoring the Bill of Rights, Heinrick and Lujan voted against it.

Unfortunately it doesn;t look good for the Senate to stall it.

Congressman’s Facebook model post - Vote scheduled 6:30PM 2/14
re: H.R. 514 as scheduled for Feb.14 Please, vote a motion to recommit the bill back to committee were it may die by tabling. This way H.R.514 will give Congressmen no opportunity to knowingly commit by vote a felony US “Frauds & Swindles” in trespassing against the 4th Amendment of the Constitution and against their oath. http://goo.gl/SaHKA
