The Patriot Act is a direct attack on the 4th amendment

Dear Darrel,

It definitely sent them reeling.

Unfortunately, much like the villains in horror movies, unconstitutional legislation is tough to kill and has a habit of coming back before you know it.

A vote is likely later today on the “PATRIOT” Act extension.

Please, contact Rep. Sam Graves at (202) 225-7041 right away and send a clear message that any vote in support of the “PATRIOT Act” is unacceptable.

They tried to sneak it through under a suspension of the rules in their “PATRIOT” Act sneak attack. But since you and I beat them Tuesday, their cover is blown.

However, in another round of political maneuvering, Republicans rammed H.R. 514, the bill to extend three provisions of the “PATRIOT” Act through December 8, 2011, through the House Rules Committee Wednesday afternoon during an “emergency” session.

The rules that passed are set up so there is almost no debate, absolutely no amendments, and no points of order against the bill or any of its provisions.

The manner in which the government is going about its effort to renew these expiring provisions is despicable.

In fact, the Republican leadership is acting exactly like the Obama Administration in its dedication to ram this extension down the American People’s throats despite widespread opposition.

Your efforts helped to keep two thirds of the House from supporting the extension. Now I need your commitment to double down on the pressure.

A vote could take place as early as today on this Bill of Rights-shredding legislation.

The liberty movement must stand up to the surveillance state by flooding the House’s offices with phone calls, faxes, and emails.

Please, contact Rep. Sam Graves at (202) 225-7041 right away to send a clear message that any vote in support of the “PATRIOT Act” is unacceptable.

By the end of this week, everyone in the U.S. House needs to know they will have to answer for trampling on the Fourth Amendment if they vote to throw your civil liberties out the window because it’s supposedly the “politically popular” thing to do.

In Liberty,
