Protect Our Privacy and Please Veto HR 4681, aka The Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015

The White House has received a petition with 8,273 signatures (so far) asking:

HR 4681 is a horrific encroachment on the privacy of the American people. It authorizes the executive branch to acquire and retain communication information on a whim and without any due process. This authorization is in section 309.

While similar things have been done without congress’s approval for years now, having this enshrined in law is dangerous and unnecessary, as such measures will now be permanent

Please veto this law not only to protect our privacy, but to send a message to congress that the American people are sick and tired of being monitored by their government without due process.

Don’t let our fear of terrorism rot away the constitution.
