Do this by opposing extension of the 2008 FISA Amendments Act (FAA).
The FAA permits government agents to spy on my electronic communications whenever I contact someone abroad. No warrant is needed. This violates the Fourth Amendment.
Senator Merkley (http://shar.es/hbAzn) says Americans would be "appalled" if they knew the extent of the spying.

Obey your oath to protect the Constitution. Restore the 4th amendment. Let the FAA expire.

Ask your friends to do the same.
