We urge you to contact your Senators and urge them to join Senator Rand Paul in supporting the Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act as an alternative to the reauthorization of the Patriot Act. The Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, call your Senator today.

Sen. Feinstein has no problem with experiments with Amer. liberties, unless she and her staff are the victims. The gov't derives its powers from the people's consent and must recognize that in areas of natural rights no one, not even a majority, can consent to their surrender for us.
If Republicans want to win they need to build a new 21st century coalition and Rand Paul’s message that conservatives are leading the fight for the constitutionally protected rights freedom of speech and privacy is a great place to start.
Paul he understands that to win, Republicans are going to have to reach out to independents and others who may have previously held negative views of the party.
