I wrote a letter to Oregon State Rep Wayne Krieger because of a total lack of action on his part on the 2012 NDAA. See below. His words now mean nothing. This is truly disgusting. So far, state rep. Tim Freeman of District 2 has been upstanding, however he does not cover our area of Coos County. This will be Tim's final year in state office. It's too bad to see him go, but he is sure to fill a Douglas County Commissioner seat and will do well there.
Here's an example of how one of our state reps work. If we are to pursue a state sponsored Bill, this is not the politician who we need any longer. He is the one who initiated a Bill (defeated) for DUII check points in Oregon. I think it's time to do what we can to oust these types of people who refuse to represent us. Feel free to let him know where you stand and what his job actually is. Comments please.
Open Letter to OR State Representative Wayne Krieger for a RCG Amendment

Dear Mr. Krieger,
I realize that you're very busy, however, I've tried unsuccessfully for several months to get you to contact me, but, I never do get a response. I've spoken more to Colleen that with you. I've even asked Tim Freemon to hand deliver notes to you and I know he brought this up to you several times before.
We have been working extremely hard against the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act here in Oregon, but we're not getting any assistance from our elected representatives after having repeatedly asked for it.
I recall asking you and Senator Kruse in a town hall meeting in Coquille if you both would sponsor a bill or support one rejecting sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA. Both of you said "absolutely."
Well sir, when will you act on this, if ever? We've had several positive actions against it at the county level. What more do we have to do to get your attention to this awful Bill that destroys our Bill of Rights and Constitutions? You represent us and are supposed to protect out rights. I haven't seen any evidence of that with you.
I am certainly very disappointed in both you and Kruse, and I voted for you both over the years, thinking that you guys actually cared. Never again unless I see results on this issue that nobody seems to care about. Politicians get into office and forget the little people below them. I do not expect to hear from you. I would be very surprised.

If you talked to Colleen about your issue that is basically the same as talking with me. With 70,000 constituents it is impossible to personally speak to everyone who contacts my office. Though I do try to.
You refer to the 2012 Nation Defense Authorization Act. Note the word “National”. I am a State Rep not a Federal Congressman or Senator. Federal laws and Acts in nearly all cases preempt State Statutes.
I don’t recall your exact words as to asking Senator Kruze or me to sponsor or support a bill. I was under the impression that you were asking that if there was a way to have a provision available to reject this bill or reject section would we be willing to do so, not that we do a bill or a resolution. And, yes we would, but in fact we can do little else. Federal law trumps anything we might propose.
We are also in the minority. The Democrats would not give a hearing on any legislation that was counter to a Federal Act.
You mentioned there had been “Positive Actions” against the NDAA at the County level. A House or Senate Resolution could be drafted , but has no legal effect against the Federal Act. Again getting a hearing this session and work session on the bill would be beyond unlikely.
It is frustration to see President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder violate our rights and liberties, lie daily, fail to enforce laws passed by Congress and use their power in the most corrupt ways.
Our problem is a Federal Government out of Control.
