Calling Out Obama

Montréal, Canada

We petition the obama administration to:
Reform ECPA: Tell the Government to Get a Warrant! Do not cowar in a corner with fear! Quoting Patrick Henry. "Give me liberty, or give me death!" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Give_me_Liberty,... !
American Citizens are deeply concerned about NSA surveillance.
But the NSA’s not the only problem. An outdated law says the IRS and hundreds of other agencies can read our communications without a warrant.
That law, known as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), was written over 25 years ago, before the services we use today even existed.
Right now, several bills in Congress would fix this by updating ECPA to require a warrant, but regulatory bodies are blocking reform in order to gain new powers of warrantless access.

We call on the Obama Administration to support ECPA reform and to reject any special rules that would force online service providers to disclose our email without a warrant.

You think it was all Obama's fault?

You don't know about ECHELON that was
going on in the nineties and that was
before George W. Bush "became" President.
