I support H.R. 294 ("To revoke a requirement of Executive Order 13618 with respect to the use of privately") because we have far too many "big brother is watching" documents from Obama now.

I oppose H.R. 294 ("To revoke a requirement of Executive Order 13618 with respect to the use of privately") because... I OPPOSE this purely because it is a multi issue bill "other purposes" = NO

I oppose H.R. 294 ("To revoke a requirement of Executive Order 13618 with respect to the use of privately") because... ...as a matter of routine from this point forward, I shall OPPOSE all proposed legislation containing the term "and other purposes", since there is a high likelihood that such other purposes have no relationship to the summarized intent of said legislation; and, in the absence of the full text of the proposed legislation, such other purposes cannot be ascertained.
