The ConGrinch that Stole Christmas

You’re celebrating. Congress is conspiring. Those Grinches are likely to vote on extending the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

The vote is planned for THURSDAY.

Because this extension will invade YOUR privacy, you should… 

Tell Congress to let the warrantless spying law expire.

Use DownsizeDC.org’s Hands off the Internet campaign.

The hardwired message says…

As a constituent, I insist that you oppose any attempts to undermine Internet freedom.

It’s always best to use your own words. But you may copy or edit these personal comments…

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.

I am more than appalled. I am angry.

Those who have friends overseas must assume that federal agents have read their emails, listened to their calls, and monitored their browsing history. I deny my consent for these criminal actions.

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

– END OF SAMPLE LETTER –

You can send your letter using DownsizeDC.org’s Educate the Powerful System.

Ask your friends to do the same.

Happy Christmas,
