Yes, I know that the FISA Amendments Act has passed both houses of Congress and been passed into law. I know that the filibuster in the Senate failed.
Now it’s time for a filibuster by the citizens of the United States of America.
The Democrats and Republicans who voted for the FISA Amendments Act did it in the middle of the summer because they think that Americans are too superficial to pay attention. They think we Americans have a short attention span, and that a few days at the beach will remove any of the anger we feel as a result of watching members of both parties in our Congress rip the Constitution to shreds.
Barack Obama and 71 other senators voted to kill the Senate filibuster. They voted to end debate and just pass the FISA Amendments Act.
The politicians in Washington D.C. expect that you will just be upset for a few days, and then you’ll forget about it. Prove them wrong.
Join a citizen filibuster of the FISA Amendments Act. Don’t stop writing. Don’t stop talking. Don’t stop calling your members of Congress until the FISA Amendments Act is repealed.
Democracy will die when citizens no longer care enough to work to defend it.
