Stop the CISPA Zombie

The Zombie is back.

 

YOU helped defeat a fake cybersecurity bill last year. It was called CISPA.

 

It's undead. Now it's called CISA.  

 

I sent a letter demanding Congress to defeat it using DownsizeDC.org's Hands Off the Internet campaign.

 

Please do the same. You may borrow from or copy this letter…

 

Why is the Senate resurrecting CISPA, now known as CISA?

 

It's a phony “cybersecurity” bill that pretends sharing our data with the NSA will somehow make us safer from cyber-attacks.

 

I DO NOT CONSENT to a bill…

 

* written in secret

* that provides few if any data retention limitations

* that encourages corporations to violate user privacy agreements

 

And making matters worse…

 

CISA isn't just limited to cyber-attacks. It could be employed in criminal investigations, imperiling my Fourth Amendment rights (yet again!).

 

Man, you folks on Capitol Hill really hate the Fourth Amendment! I get it. Still…

 

* Have you learned NOTHING from the Snowden revelations?

* Hasn't someone on your staff told you that “we the people,” in overwhelming numbers, demand LESS NSA power?

 

It's not like there's no solution to cybersecurity challenges. Instead of complying with CISA, private businesses should seek decentralized, diversified, innovative cybersecurity systems. Diversification always reduces risk. And, it will contain the damage any attack could inflict.  

 

You work for me. I DEMAND you defeat CISA.

 

–END OF LETTER–

 

Send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

 

Hey, if the NSA wants to listen, why not broadcast your opinions. That's why we use Facebook. Please, go to DownsizeDC.org's Facebook page today, and click “Like.”

 

And, whether you're clicking Like today or you did it in the past, please also note…

 

We post several items on Facebook most days. But you still might be missing our feeds!

 

Once you're on our Facebook page, look for the “Liked” button and click the down arrow on it.  

 

  • In that drop down menu, highlight and click on “Add to interest lists…”

  • When the box pops up, click “Next.”

  • If you don’t have any “interest lists” yet, Facebook will prompt you to create a list name. I named my list “Accurately Informed.”

  • Remember to click “Done.”

 

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer,
