Civil Liberties

civil rights bannerI support the following propositions:

  • The United States has a long history of honoring and protecting human rights.
  • The United States also has abrogated the rights of various groups including Native Americans, African-Americans, women, some immigrants, and some individuals on the basis of sexual orientation.
  • The United States operates best when it extends human rights to as many people as possible.
  • Civil liberties have been primarily protected by the federal government, not states.  We should embrace U.S. Supreme Court decisions that protect the rights of those who do not receive equal protection under the law.
  • Issues of civil liberties are complicated.  In general when we extend a right to one person it means we are taking another right from a different person.  We must make decisions based on fairness and be particularly mindful of protecting the rights of minorities and people who are at an economic disadvantage.

    I have a large voice in the LGBTQ community, and I’m wondering if you’re for, or against gay marriage in the state of Missouri.

  2. Yes, I definitely support gay marriage in the state of Missouri and throughout the country.

    I was hoping you might elaborate on some of your responses in the “Campaign for Liberty” questionnaire. After hearing you speak at the League of Women Voters debate, some of your responses on the questionnaire surprised me. I am liberal but also very concerned about civil liberties.

    I was especially concerned about the “no” answers to these items:
    15. Will you oppose federal power grabs like roving wiretaps and warrantless searches and oppose Patriot Act renewal that includes such items?
    16. Will you support efforts to end the NSA’s unconstitutional domestic spying program?
    18. Will you support keeping our Internet free from government control and intrusion, including opposing power grabs such as SOPA, CISPA, or any other bill that mandates more government intervention in the Internet?

    Thank you!

    1. Sandra, these are obviously really good questions. For me, there is a common thread through them. I do believe that the federal government has a responsibility to protect us from those who would truly threaten us. It certainly is true that the NSA and other agencies have gone far beyond that mandate and are trampling on civil liberties. But I think that we have to be careful about not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

      Additionally, I cannot recall us having a more intelligent individual in recent government than Barack Obama. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt. He knows a hell of a lot more about this than I do. I will give some credence to his policies regarding the conduct of these agencies.

      On the other hand, it may be that as president he has received a relentless amount of pressure from the military, from intelligence agencies, and from the largest users of the internet. This is where Congress comes in. Members of Congress are not under the constant barrage of the “military-intelligence complex.” When I’m elected, it will be a high priority of mine to look into the accusations that you and many others make. I know that there will be pressure from certain entrenched forces and I need people like you to keep my B.S. detector working.
