From their Action Alert:

No Compromise on Liberty

As we’re celebrating independence and freedom this Independence Day, many senators are getting ready to come back to Washington and sell out some of our most fundamental freedoms.

This July 8, senators will make a crucial decision: whether or not to eviscerate our treasured right to privacy in our own homes and let lawbreaking telecom companies off the hook for handing over private information without a warrant.

Email your senators today. Demand they protect your privacy and the rule of law.

The default text for the email also makes an important point:
Please also reject any bill that lets the president keep spying on the personal phone calls and emails of Americans without getting a warrant. Checks and balances are critical in our democracy.

You have to ask what the point is in electing Democrats if they are going to act like Republicans on issues like stopping FISA expansion which are vital to our freedoms as Americans.

  2. Hey Lib, the point in voting in the democrats is that they may back down on FISA but they will implement other liberal changes within the scope of the government. We can't have everything our way as much as you and I would both like it.

    The problem with politics is that politicians are always thinking re-electability hence the Democrats would be painted as soft on terror etc... better to take the hit on some areas and move forward with others.

  6. Crain: It is so rare for Democrats to even try to implement liberal changes that your line of reasoning doesn't apply.

    As for electibility, that's an argument for withholding support from Democrats. If they are going to do whatever it takes to get elected, then we need to cause them to lose elections until they stop acting like Republicans.
