It Takes A Coward To Shred Freedoms

The following email was sent from The Free Press, written by Josh Levy, it is set off in quotes.

“A major threat to our online privacy has come back from the dead. Last year, thanks to a public outcry, the effort to pass overreaching cybersecurity legislation stalled in the Senate. Now supporters have reintroduced the House version of that legislation — the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). It’s the zombie bill that refuses to die. The “new” CISPA is identical to the original CISPA that passed in the House last year — and poses the same threat to our digital civil liberties and our freedom to connect online. Take action now to kill the new CISPA. Just like the old CISPA, the new CISPA would offer companies like Facebook and Microsoft protection from legal liability when they hand over your sensitive online data to the federal government, without any regard for your privacy. And it would permit the government — including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security — to use that information for matters that have nothing to do with cybersecurity.1 The whole process would, of course, take place behind closed doors, with no accountability to the public. Tell Congress: Vote “No” on ANY cybersecurity bill that threatens our online privacy and freedom to connect. Last year, President Obama vowed to veto any destructive CISPA-like bill that reached his desk. This time around it’s unclear if the president would once again commit to vetoing CISPA. So if the new “zombie” CISPA goes farther than it did last time around, we simply don’t know what will happen.”

Who are these members of congress who would flush down the toilet the freedoms that were won with the blood of the revolution and the subsequent blood of WWII veterans? (you remember: The Greatest Generation). Well, the sniveling, quivering wimps in Congress who would have us believe that there is a terrorist under every PC want to expand the police state, again. It’s getting to look like the old Soviet Union and Nazi Germany around here (papers please) … ENOUGH you cowards. Does everything scare you? This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. It sounds like you are not up to being an American, in fact you are quite un-American as measured against the standards established by the founding fathers and the WWII vets. Get lost, and take your CISPA, Patriot Act NSA and CIA junk with you.. Having to choose between freedom and security is a false choice. There is no negotiation, Americans choose freedom, we will deal with security when and if we have to.
