Feds implementing the Patriot Act

I received the following from Demand Progress in which they state that the Feds are improperly implementing the Patriot Act by spying on Americans when it has nothing to do with terrorism and they know it doesn't but they will snoop on you anyway:

To Eric Holder: Stop Lying About The PATRIOT Act

From Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall: Law enforcement is using a secret interpretation of the PATRIOT Act to spy on people who aren't connected with terrorism. The FBI operates under a cloak of secrecy, so we only know about this because these two courageous senators are defying the intelligence agencies and speaking out. Here's the New York Times:

Mr. Wyden and Mr. Udall have for months been raising concerns that the government has secretly interpreted a part of the Patriot Act in a way that they portray as twisted, allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct some kind of unspecified domestic surveillance that they say does not dovetail with a plain reading of the statute.

Wyden and Udall deserve our support. They just wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that he come clean -- will you sign on at right to join them?

PETITION TO ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER: Stop misleading the public. We stand with Senators Wyden and Udall and demand that you come clean about how you're using the PATRTIOT Act.

Just fill out the form at right to sign the petition.

You may want to also contact your elected leaders in Congress,both houses and tell them you're not a big fan of what this administraition is allowing to happpen under their watch that is a good example of bad policy and it has to come to an end. You can find Congressional addresses in the Men's Resources area. To preserve your freedoms you may want to act right away while you still can.

Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks at 9/11. These unconstitutional laws should be abolished seeing as they violate human rights and due process not to mention the mere 3 criminal charges a year attributed to this act. The laws are simply means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my artist’s response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
