Don't Let One of Your Senators Expand the Patriot Act in Secret
    #4191008 - 05/18/05 03:06 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Don?t Let One of Your Senators Expand the Patriot Act in Secret

The Senate Intelligence Committee will be holding a secret meeting tomorrow to expand the Patriot Act. Instead of listening to the public concern about the Patriot Act?s infamous provisions, the Committee -- which includes one of your Senators -- will be meeting behind closed doors to discuss expanding the government power to conduct surveillance and obtain personal records.

The Patriot Act is too important to be expanded in secret. Click here to urge Congress to hold open meetings when it considers changes to the Patriot Act and to fully consider public input on these proposed expansions of government surveillance powers.

The proposed Patriot Act expansion would make permanent all those provisions that expand the government power. For example, it would make permanent the section that allows the FBI to seize secretly a vast array of sensitive personal information and belongings -- including medical, library and business records -- using secret intelligence tools that do not require individual criminal activity and that do not require specific facts connecting these records to terrorism, to a terrorist, or to a spy.

Congress passed the Patriot Act in in a hurry with virtually no debate . . . don't let them do it again.

Take action! Click here to urge your Senators to hold open and public hearings on the expansion of the Patriot Act.

If its a secret how can we stop them from doing it? We obviously wont know about it.

There is not a lot of difference between a fox hole and a grave; but knowing that you dug your ditch and climbed in anyway.

Shit - both of the Senators from my district are very conservative. One of them is Frist, so I'm sure at least one is all for this. I doubt Frist's office will even pay attention to the ACLU email....

My dad says that only criminals should worry about the PATRIOT Act and that if you haven't done anything wrong, then you have nothing to worry about.
