|Whereas:||H.R. 350 is a dangerous expansion of the original Patriot Act, which would target millions of law-abiding Americans who do not align politically with the party in power in Washington; and|
|Whereas:||The abuses of domestic snooping and spying in the U.S. have been well documented over the past 20 years, including violations of the privacy rights of innocent Americans and even the prior president; and|
|Whereas:||The targeting of groups for political reasons will certainly lead to an expansion of the target list to include those on both sides of the aisle; and|
|Whereas:||This type of abuse of power has often led to horrible crimes throughout history, including, but not limited to the loss of rights of the innocent, concentration of dissidents in detention facilities, and even genocide;|
|Therefore:||I demand you oppose any such efforts to create a “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Bill,” including H.R. 350, which targets innocent Americans exercising their constitutionally protected rights!|
