These guys never give up trying to get their pals out of hot water.

FISA (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) has been in place for 30 years and has dictated the necessary and appropriate ways for U. S. Law enforcement to collect intelligence on its own citizens for the sake of national security.

The phone companies broke the law when they handed over information on US citizens to this whacked out administration without search warrants, violating the Second Amendment of our constitution protecting us from unreasonable search and seizure.

In February 2008 the House of Representatives did its job and rejected the Bush / Cheney FISA “reform” proposals there by protecting our Constitution but now the Senate is getting ready to give W’s pals in the Telecom immunity for breaking the law.

Senator Kit Bond. (R-MO), is now proposing a complete revamping of FISA.  He wants to strip us of our rights by including unlimited warrantless wiretapping for the executive branch for the next six years, without any meaningful judicial oversight.  It also grants retroactive immunity to the telecom companies that broke the law and handed over our records to King George and is lackeys.

We have to speak out LOUD & CLEAR and reject this shameful legislation.  If the House will keep their backbone and stay with their current version of FISA, in order for the government to spy on you they will have to get a warrant and have just cause to gather information from your phone conversations and emails.  That is what our founders knew to be the right way to keep us safe from tyrants who would use this to quell dissent.

Write, call, fax, or visit your congressman and tell him if they vote for Senator Bond’s catastrophic FISA compromise when it come to the house that they will not have your support or vote this November.

Tell your friends and family or anybody that will listen to reject this compromise of our freedom and keep the Telecom industry and your government officials liable for their actions and do not grant immunity to lawbreakers.  Congress, stand strong on your February vote and stick with the current version of FISA.

Feel free to use or alter my letter to send to your representative.Find your representatives here.http://www.house.gov/

I strongly urge you to stand strong on the House’s February vote on FISA. Stick with the current version of FISA and vote for the Constitution by voting against Senator Bond's catastrophic FISA "compromise" when it comes to the House.Sincerely,
Peace and Liberty through intelligence, strength, and integrity.
