You should sign this petition because You, as a citizen of The United States are seeing the rights afforded You in The United States Constitution become null and void with the introduction and action of legislation like The Patriot Act and The NDAA. These Acts are not unlike The COINTELPRO program which was investigated by The Senate Church Committee in 1975 and found to be unlawful. The same actions made then by the intelligence agencies are now made lawful under these Acts and should be repealed as they stand. We have seen the abuses the intelligence community have made in the past when allowed to go unchecked; and it is time to put the checks and balances afforded us in The U.S. Constitution into full affect.
