Sign My petition!
In 2001 President George W Bush signed into law the USA PATRIOT act. This bill provides for warrant less wire taps, indefinite detention of immigrants, non permissible searches, and gives the FBI permission to search email, phone records, and financial records without a court order.
In 2011 President Barack Obama signed not only the extension of PATRIOTS 3 most grievous petitions(Roving wire taps, Searching business records, and the surveillance of "Lone Wolves") He furthered the injustice to the American people by signing the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, commonly called the NDAA. This act provides for the indefinite detention of American citizens suspected of terrorism WITHOUT TRIAL!
While the president did provide a signing statement stating his office would not authorize the detainment of Americans without due process, this is not enough. We want these provisions, and the entire PATRIOT act removed. It is only by standing together that we can show our government that we are not serfs, or chess pieces, but citizens!
