Dear Governor Kitzhaber,
Please take a stand against the ongoing deterioration of our constitutionally guaranteed Liberties. We need to defeat the Patriot Act, additional Executive War Powers and the Federal moves to undermine our rights. These rights are not negotiable. The greatest minds of history were heard from in the construction of our founding documents. They are great works of rational humanity. The voices of people honoring secular and sacred traditions were instrumental in the thought that preceded the documents themselves.
We need your voice to add significance in defense of our future. The TSA is growing out of control and has become an epidemic in our society. The ongoing mistreatment of innocent civilians at the airport coupled with expansive powers which erode our 10th, 6th, 5th, 1st and 4th amendments.
History predicts the precipice which we now stand upon. Men of great courage now will be remembered in the future, even if their popularity wanes at present. Please take a stand for the future of our country, for generations which are unseen at present. Please act with intelligence, passion and strength. Don't leave the care of our Constitutional rights to those bent on destruction, paranoia or tyranny.
