Congress: Repeal the PATRIOT Act!

This petition had 17,035 supporters

The powers the PATRIOT Act grants to the executive branch were dangerously broad when it was passed, and they're dangerously broad now.

It seems evident neither the standard of judicial review for the authorization of surveillance activities nor the one-sided nature of the process has adequately protected Americans' constitutional rights to privacy and due process.

It's time to repeal some of the PATRIOT Act's most troubling provisions. Take action now and tell Congress that no administration should be trusted with such broad and loosely defined power to spy on Americans.
