Congressman Tom Perriello - A Profile in Courage?

Tom Perriello, the congressman from the Virginia 5th, said:

"if you don't tie our hands, we will keep stealing"

He is from a traditionally republican district, that went to McCain in the presidental election in 08.  It was considered one of the biggest upsets of the night.  He is an attorney that helped get rid of Liberian dictator Charles Taylor.  He has a record of helping promote democracy around the world.  One would think that would be the reason why he is thinking that our federal government has become too powerful and is violating the constitution; the foundation of ours. 

Now, he did vote for the original house bill, but I believe he will be voting no on the senate bill. 

We will have to wait and see how much courage he really has, but at least it is a start.
