The Patriot Act Renewal Vote Today: Take Action! Call Congress NOW!

The Campaign for Liberty reports that "The Senate will hold a critical cloture vote on the Patriot Act later today," but you wouldn't know it by visiting any of the big, mainstream media websites. Just like they passed the liberty and law-defying act a decade ago, Congress will reauthorize this most hateful abomination under the cover of silence and a media blackout.

Some of the most controversial provisions of the so-called "Patriot" Act are up for renewal, and the police state party in Washington (which transcends the apparent partisan divide between the "blue" and "red" teams) seems poised to renew these provisions (which would expire at the end of this week) for four more years!

Please use this excellent tool from the Campaign for Liberty to find your Representatives' and Senators' contact information, call them (do not email... calling exerts your views more forcefully and ties up their lines and personnel), and politely urge them to oppose the Patriot Act on every vote - including cloture.

We cannot let this act continue to stand.
