Below is a template letter to be used in a fax. It has been provided by Downsize DC.

I'm disturbed by Congress's negligent oversight of the Patriot Act . . .

* You haven't established that any of the powers given to the FBI and other federal agencies have actually PREVENTED acts of terrorism
* You have failed to investigate the FBI, or hold it accountable, for possibly tens of thousands of abuses

As a result . . .

* I don't feel that the Patriot Act has made us "safer"
* I'm more afraid of federal agents than I am of terrorists

Instead of renewing provisions of the Patriot Act, you should REPEAL all of it. And then you should hold hearings to investigate FBI abuses.

Do not hesitate! Calling takes less than 5 minutes!

Track the Patriot Act renewal here.

The EFF is also collecting your signatures against the Patriot Act renewal. Please spend 5 minutes on that too!
