Petition to Repeal the USA Patriot Act in its entirety.
Just came across this:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Repeal the USA Patriot Act in its entirety.
The USA Patriot Act is in direct violation of the 4th, 5th, 6th & 14th Amendments to the Constitution, contained in the Bill of Rights. The powers included in the USA Patriot Act are explained in detail here: https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/repeal-the-patriot-act/ .
The USA Patriot Act should therefore be repealed. (If deemed necessary, the Act may then be replaced in its entirety with an Act that conforms the Constitutional rights of US Citizens, whether natural born or naturalized, within or outside the borders of the USA.)
Upon repeal, all measures and activities of or by agencies in support of the USA Patriot Act should therefore be suspended immediately until such time as a fully Constitutional Bill be authorized and enacted by Congress and the President of the US.

public doesnt give a shit. Many DU Democrats right here in RiverCity dont give a shit.
