This morning, a bill that would allow telecom companies to legally spy on us without our knowing and give our information (without a warrant) to the government came to the Senate floor. Unfortunately, the bill was voted for advancement. However, all is not lost. Some Senators voted for advancement so that they could criticize it and amend it. Please, I implore you, write to your Senators via the EFF ( http://www.eff.org/showdown ) and tell them that you want them to vote against this bill. If this gets passed, it will set a dangerous precedent for future situations regarding executive power. Help keep our country a democracy.
