Hurt supports INDEFINITE DETENTION of American citizens without a warrant or charges, and holding them in prison indefinitely without charges or benefit of trial by a jury of their peers. Seriously?!
Indeed, here is the proof. "Hurt voted in support of HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108."
Yes, Congressman Hurt voted to give the President unilateral power to suspend the 1st, 5th, and potentially 4th Amendments to the U.S Constitution at whim. Rush Limbaugh is right- it really is not about Republican v. Democrat; it is now Washington v. the People. Robert Hurt v. his constituents- you and me.
Those with lifetime paid benefits, free market healthcare, pension, and immunity from the tyranny of the laws to which they subject you and me are brusquely legislating away the Constitution and along with it the Liberty for which men have fought and died for 250 years.
Congressman Hurt, we have a message for you: You WILL represent us; you WILL abide by the constraints of the Constitution; you WILL read every piece of legislation before voting upon it; you WILL vote 'NO' on any piece of legislation you are not given time to read before the vote; you WILL cease to use the power of government to enrich yourself; you WILL begin to properly defend the Constitution and liberty; if you don't, we will call you home as the People of the 7th did to Congressman Cantor.
No one is above the Constitution, sir. Not you, not the president, not anyone.
You may feel insulated from reality, you may believe your seat to be safe, and yourself to be invincible;
Please reconsider such fallacious governing philosophy as you clearly have adopted in recent years.
We the People, your employer and boss, have the power and we will exercise it as we see fit. Money won't bail you out, endorsements won't save your job.
We decide that, and no one else.
We have warned you. Your response is up to you.
