Congress Pushes to Make Patriot Act Permanent.

This has to be stopped I think a lot of people have forgotten about it now that some of the post 9/11 hysteria has died down but thats what these congressmanare relying on. We can stop this now most people dont believe all the lies anymore. Their scare tactics are not working as well lets stop the Patriot Act renewal before Congress finds another justification to extend it. You can start by going here and finding out where your senator stands on the bill. After that its a matter of contacting him or her. Phone calls or letters work best. If you need help let me know.

Freshly emboldened by their mid-term congressional wins, establishment Republicans are set to extend the unconstitutional police state Patriot Act. It is set to expire in three weeks and Republicans are eager to make sections of the legislation permanent.

On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee postponed a vote to continue and extend the law. “Having this debate year after year offers little certainty to agents utilizing these provisions to keep the nation safe,” said ranking member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
“Short-term reauthorizations lead to operational uncertainty and compliance and reporting problems if the reauthorization occurs too close to expiration,” Grassley continued. “If these provisions are necessary, we should provide more certainty rather than simply revisiting the law year after year given the indefinite threat we face from acts of terrorism, and that looks like decades ahead. We should permanently reauthorize the three expiring provisions.”
