President Bush admitted to personally authorizing thousands of allegedly illegal wiretaps, and he doesn’t plan to stop. Circumventing the Constitution is serious business.
This is a big moment. People from across the political spectrum are standing together to protect the rule of law and the principles that are core to our identity as Americans.
Can you sign this petition to show Congress that Americans want a thorough investigation of the president’s secret wiretapping program?
I signed it and here is my extra comment:
We are walking ever closer to an Orwellian government, with “big brother” spying on all of us. One of the major foundations for our government was accountability for everyone, including the people in power… this is precisely what is needed to hedge against dictatorships and is precisely what is being ignored and over-ruled by Bush’s administration. We need some honest investigation. We need to hear the actual results of that investigation. If action should be taken afterwards, we need that action to be taken. A president isn’t abovethe laws of his country.
