As a liberal Democrat, I often disagree with our congressional delegation. I'm writing to applaud both Lisa Murkowski and Don Young for their steadfast support of our personal freedom against the worst excesses of the Patriot Act. It takes brave and principled people to stand up against the leadership of their own party. For this, they've earned my respect.
I hope they will exhibit the same steadfastness in dealing with a president who appears to think that Congress authorized the use of force against the Constitution, not our enemies.
