In the wake of the 2012 presidential election, Congress and the Obama administration enjoy several opportunities to advance civil rights and civil liberties. Constitutional rights and principles are important to all Americans, yet leaders from each of the major political parties, in spite of their oaths of office, remain committed to assaulting them.
I just joined BORDC in the fight to protect civil liberties during the 2012 lame duck session in congress. Will you?
View the latest BORDC petition demanding the restoration of your right to privacy, trial, and more. http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/498/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=11940
By signing this petition, your name will be added to the legions of other Americans who share your concerns about warrantless wiretapping, indefinite and arbitrary military detention within the United States, and outdated protections for electronic privacy.
If Congress proceeds on its current trajectory, it will address none of these concerns this year. Only if members hear a grounds-well can we hope for our constitutional rights to gain ground during this year’s lame-duck period.
For more information on the various legislation mentioned and the latest news on the issues, view our recent blog post (http://www.constitutioncampaign.org/blog/?p=11048) that dives deeper into these assaults on your rights.
