Don’t Let the Statist Thugs Prosecute Lavabit and Silent Circle
By Perry Willis

ACTION ITEM

Lavabit and Silent Circle closed down their email services rather than submit to an order permitting the NSA to spy on their customers. Now these heroic business owners face prosecution from the Feds.

Will you defend them? And if you won’t.....

Who will defend you if you run afoul of the federal monster?

Set a good example. Do what I did.....

I sent my so-called reps a message about this matter using DownsizeDC.org’s campaign to Deny Consent to “government” criminality. I hope you will do the same. The hardwired message for this campaign reads.....

I deny my consent to “government” criminality.

To that I added the following personal comments from which you can borrow.....

Specifically, I consider the NSA’s blanket spying on the American people to be a criminal act. By contrast, I consider Lavabit and Silent Circle to be heroes, because they refused to participate in this criminality.

You would do well to start providing me with the same kind of service that Lavabit and Silent Circle gave to their customers. In other words.....

GIVE ME WHAT I WANT, NOT WHAT YOU WANT.

Stop ruling me and start serving me.

Here’s what I want......

- I want you to end the NSA’s warrantless spying on Americans
- I want you to repeal the Patriot Act
- I want you to intervene: Stop the threatened prosecution of Lavabit and Silent Circle

Please fix these problems or lose additional legitimacy in my eyes.
