Congress planning to renew "Patriot" Act

From the NY Times:
Congressional negotiators neared a final agreement Wednesday night on legislation that will extend and keep largely intact the sweeping antiterrorism powers granted to the federal government after the Sept. 11 attacks under the law known as the USA Patriot Act.

After months of vitriolic debate, the tentative agreement represents a significant and somewhat surprising victory for the Bush administration in maintaining the government's expanded powers to investigate, monitor and track terror suspects.

Guess what: You're a suspect.

Give your Congresscritters a call today and tell them that you don't want this totalitarian piece of crap renewed. Feel free to use stronger language.
