Senate Votes on "Patriot" Act Today





Campaign for Liberty


Dear Patriot,

The Senate will hold a critical cloture vote on renewing the Patriot Act at 5 pm eastern today, and only the immediate action of C4L members and other true patriots nationwide will put a halt to the ever-expanding surveillance state and save the Fourth Amendment from
being pushed further into the shredder.

Contact Sen. Rob Portman by phone at (202) 224-3353 and Sen. Sherrod Brown by phone at (202) 224-2315 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each
cloture vote.

On Friday, May 27, three provisions of the misnamed “Patriot” Act are set to expire

In clear violation of their oaths to uphold the Constitution, the statists in Washington, D.C. are determined not to let that happen.

You see, last week, the House GOP, under the leadership of John Boehner and Eric Cantor (who are turning their backs on the limited government mandate they claimed to support in
November 2010), cut yet another deal with Harry Reid – this time to extend the “Patriot” Act for four more years with as little
debate as possible!

A four-year extension “conveniently” puts the next renewal vote in 2015 – a non-election year when our brave politicians won’t have to answer for their actions at the polls.


Empowered by the Republicans’ collapse on civil liberties, Harry Reid filed cloture last Thursday.

Don’t accept the statists’ pathetic excuses for one minute – a vote for “cloture” today is a vote FOR the Fourth Amendment-shredding “Patriot” Act.

Please don’t miss this point – if cloture (allowing for the bill to be debated and voted on) fails each and every time he tries it,
Harry Reid CANNOT extend the “Patriot” Act. 

Period.

But your senators are used to skating through on cloture votes and claiming that they are just harmless “procedure.”

Fellow Patriot, if you don’t turn up the heat on them today, they’ll say they didn’t hear from their constituents about a “procedural” vote – even one that enabled Reid to get
everything he wanted with a simple majority vote on final passage.

Your phone calls today will keep that story from being true.  You’ll be able to hold them accountable because you told them before the vote EXACTLY what they were
going to do to the Constitution.

They need to know – TODAY – that the freedom movement is alive, well, and finished with watching them destroy our liberties.

That’s why your immediate action is needed!

Contact Sen. Rob Portman by phone at (202) 224-3353 and Sen. Sherrod Brown by phone at (202) 224-2315 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each
cloture vote.

Reid’s bill is essentially the same bill the Senate and President were trying to rush through Congress without any debate in February - before Rand Paul and C4L members forced them to agree to a 90-day extension.

For ten long years, Americans have been given a false choice by their representatives and senators between trading some of their liberties for so-called “security” and experiencing a new 9/11- style terrorist attack.


This viewpoint was as apparent as ever during the House Judiciary Committee’s final “Patriot” Act hearing, where your pressure ensured C4L was heard in front of Congress.
 
The problem for our politicians, and in fact for all Americans who feel “safer” after trading some of their liberties, is that 9/11 didn’t occur
because of a failure to gather useable intelligence.  Rather, it occurred because of the bureaucrats’ failure to use the intelligence that
had been gathered.

This is typical of the federal government.  Whenever it fails to do its jobs properly, its solution is to throw more money at the problem and grab more power.

The abominable acts that occurred on 9/11 were unjustifiable, but we cannot allow the White House and Congress to destroy the rights and liberties that
made this nation great


Contact Sen. Rob Portman by phone at (202) 224-3353 and Sen. Sherrod Brown by phone at (202) 224-2315 to demand they vote against renewing the “Patriot” Act on every vote – including each
cloture vote.
 
Campaign for Liberty has done everything we can to make our position clear to the politicians on Capitol Hill.  Now it’s up to grassroots activists like you to make your voices heard and turn up the heat. 


Politics really is just a game of numbers.  Will your call be the one that changes your senators’ vote from “YEA” to “NAY”? 

Please, help C4L restore our civil liberties and roll back the surveillance state by taking just a few minutes out of your day to call your senators.

Remember Benjamin Franklin’s wise words, "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

The choice whether or not to continue giving up essential Liberty is ours to make today.


In Liberty,


John Tate
President


P.S.  My staff and I have spent countless hours doing what we can to fight the so-called “Patriot” Act over the last three months.  If you are
able, please consider chipping in $10 to help C4L
continue fighting for the restoration of our liberties.

In  CANADA,  phoning  anyone  in  our  government  never,  ever  proved  prosperious  at  all.  But,  petitions  did  and  emails  did  -  especially  emails.  We  would  bog  down  their  Web  Site  with  our opinions  and  the  staff  had  no  choice  but  to  read  them  or  "Scan"  them.  Sometimes  it  was very  sucessful &  sometimes  not;  as  in  the  case  of  H.S.T.  (Harmonized  Sales  Tax)!!!  That

issue  has  been  debated  for  two  years  now.  It  has  been  an  election  "Issue"  for  the  second  time.  Government  is  all  lies  -  they  are  as  Corrupt  up  here  as  they  are  down  there!!!!

Reid Preempts Paul, Slips Patriot Act in Small Business Bill

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has circumvented a call by the newly elected senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, to debate the Patriot Act.

In order to prevent a filibuster, Reid performed “some procedural gymnastics,” according to Fox News, and slipped Patriot Act language into a House small business bill that is considered filibuster-proof.

In doing so, Reid has skirted objections to the bill led by Paul and has moved closer to extending the Patriot Act without debate. Democrats have applauded this effort to rush the extension into law without debate.
