Tell our senator(s): I can't believe you sold out the Bill of Rights.

Dear Friend,

I just expressed my severe disappointment in Senators Cornyn and Hutchison, who voted yes on warrantless wiretapping.

Please have a look at this CREDO Action e-activism campaign. On July 9th, sixty-nine senators -- including Senators Cornyn and Hutchison -- voted to gut the Fourth Amendment. They voted to hand President Bush the power to spy on Americans without warrants, and to immunize the telecoms who allegedly helped him do so in the past.

So why does a president with the lowest approval ratings since the advent of polling have the power to eviscerate the Constitution?

Because Senators Cornyn and Hutchison gave it to him. At the signing ceremony in the Rose Garden, President Bush paid "special tribute" (his words) to Democrats like Steny Hoyer, Jay Rockefeller, and Silvestre Reyes for helping to pass the bill.

You can make your opinion heard by signing this petition and speaking out for our civil liberties.
