Yesterday, Glenn Beck and I talked about the Surveillance State Repeal Act (H.R. 1466), the bill I introduced with Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI) to repeal the #PatriotAct. Listen to the podcast and let me know what you think in the comments below!
The Patriot Act contains many provisions that violate the Fourth Amendment and have led to a dramatic expansion of our domestic surveillance state. Our Founding Fathers fought and died to stop the kind of warrantless spying and searches that the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act authorize. It is long past time to repeal the Patriot Act and reassert the constitutional rights of all Americans.
We’re not giving up. People are fed up. They want their privacy back.
