400 U.S. Community Resolutions Against the U.S.A. UN-Patriot Act!

U.S.A. UN-Patriot Act

Sorry George, We know a lie when WE see it.

From the American Civil Liberties web site:

U.S.A. Patriot Act

Just 45 days after the September 11 attacks, with virtually no debate, Congress passed the U.S.A. Patriot Act. Many parts of this sweeping legislation take away checks on law enforcement and threaten the very rights and freedoms that we are struggling to protect. For example, without a warrant and without probable cause, the FBI now has the power to access your most private medical records, your library records, and your student records... and can prevent anyone from telling you it was done.

The Department of Justice is expected to introduce a sequel, dubbed PATRIOT II, that would further erode key freedoms and liberties of every American. The ACLU and many allies on the left and right believe that before giving law enforcement new powers, Congress must first re-examine provisions of the first Patriot Act to ensure that is in alignment with key constitutional protections.

Eight states and 400 cities and counties have passed resolutions to protect their 85,104,445 residents’ civil liberties and this represents people who oppose sections of the U.S.A. Patriot Act.. Hundreds more resolutions critical of the Patriot Act are in progress.
