The latest statistics for both our growth and the current Patriot Act campaign have been posted at our blog. Check it out.
Bad provisions of the Patriot Act will sunset on December 31 unless Congress votes to extend them. Word is that the House may vote tomorrow, and the Senate may take this up Monday, but there is a lot of resistance in both houses of Congress. We must encourage this resistance, and we must do it now! If they vote tomorrow it will be too late. So act now! To send your message to Congress opposing the extension of the Patriot Act click here.
