Now is the time to let our representatives know that we want a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act bill passed that protects our civil liberties and our national security.

I oppose retroactive immunity for the phone companies that unlawfully participated in the warrantless surveillance program. We should not willingly give up our right to privacy in a misguided effort to save our way of life.

Respect for our constitutional rights is the bedrock of our democracy. Retroactive immunity for those companies who violated our rights sends the wrong message.

Tell your congressman to stand up to those trying to scare us into believing that we cannot be safe and free.
