I vetoed any bill that was in favor of choice!

Friends,

This is HUGE: President Obama just threatened to veto CISPA if it makes its way through Congress.

Please click here to urge Obama to stand strong, and to let your lawmakers know that you support Obama’s veto threat.

CISPA is up for a vote this week. It would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States, giving the government — including the military — broad new powers to spy on Internet users.

The White House’s letter expresses precisely the concerns that we’ve been highlighting over recent weeks — and is a result of the public pressure against CISPA:

  • The White House says that any cybersecurity legislation must preserve “Americans’ privacy, data confidentiality, and civil liberties and [recognize] the civilian nature of cyberspace.”
  • It says that, “The bill also lacks sufficient limitations on the sharing of personally identifiable information between private entities and does not contain adequate oversight or accountability measures necessary to ensure that the data is used only for appropriate purposes.”

And the letter goes on to assert that:

The American people expect their Government to enhance security without undermining their privacy and civil liberties.

Without clear legal protections and independent oversight, information sharing legislation will undermine the public’s trust in the Government as well as in the Internet by undermining fundamental privacy, confidentiality, civil liberties, and consumer protections.

This is an amazing development.  Let’s make the most of it:

Just click here to urge Obama to stand strong and to tell your lawmakers to oppose CISPA.

Thanks.

PS- We only have a few days left to kill CISPA.  Please tell your friends to get involved by forwarding this email or using these links:

Or threaten to Veto it, if the Senate passes it.

Remember, the Senate hasn’t voted yet.

If they DO pass it, then actually VETO IT!

Then Demand a Stand-Alone Debt Ceiling Bill, or threaten to invoke the 14th Amendment.

If they don’t produce the stand-alone bill, then ACTUALLY CALL THEIR BLUFF AND INVOKE THE 14th Amendment.

If they try to impeach you, we’ll have your back, trust me.

In the meantime, as it makes its way through the courts, the American people will enjoy your having raised the Debt Ceiling, and your decision will be proven right.

Seriously, you could win us ALL BACK, with this course of action.

[NOTE* from Leftish, Obama said he was willing to be a one-term President - well let’s put his feet to the fire…if this plan of action makes sense to you, please pass this on. With enough pressure, anything can happen. The Senate Vote is at NOON on Tuesday, August 2, 2011.]
