I just sent another letter to Congress in support of the "Surveillance State Repeal Act." You may want to do the same after you read my sample letter below. Remember...
This bill would repeal all the legislation that has permitted your so-called government to spy on you without a warrant. The hardwired message for this campaign reads...
Co-sponsor the "Surveillance State Repeal Act (HR 2818)."
Here's what I added (from which you can borrow)...
Documents provided to The Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveal that the NSA is sharing intelligence with the State of Israel, including data taken from American citizens without a warrant! ( http://bit.ly/18fDglW )
Only communications between U.S. government officials are exempted. This says a lot about how you view the American people. You view us as your subjects, to be ruled, not served.
We have been constantly lied to about the extent of NSA spying. Each time a revelation comes out federal officials deny it, only to be proven wrong later. Most recently we learned that NSA data is being shared with the DEA. And now we learn that even foreign governments can listen to recordings of our phone calls!
This is a criminal violation of my rights — of my neighbor's rights. I deny consent.
You can repair this. Sponsor HR 2818 immediately.
— END OF SAMPLE LETTER —
