I've called my senators and asked them to oppose reauthorization of the PATRIOT ACT, specifically the most egregious part of the act (Sect. 215). Fortunately, Sen. Markey has come out against reauthorization under any name, including the House's recently passed version called the USA Freedom Act, which ironically takes away your freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, and has a detrimental effect on your freedom of speech. Not sure where Sen. Warren stands, but I have a feeling she's on the same page, but as her constituent, she now knows where I stand. There isn't much time. The existing Act expires on June 1, unless reauthorized by the Senate. Please call your senators today and tell them to relegate this most insidious piece of legislation to the trash heap of history, where it rightly belongs! You can easily find your senators' contact info here:
I've also attached a link to a letter that the Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC) will send to your senators. Please click on the link, fill out the form, and they will send it to your senators!
