Repeal the unconstitutional Patriot Act, the Real ID Act and oppose Internet ID and FCC Control of the Internet.

296 Letters Sent So Far

The right to freedom of speech is under attack, and it’s only a matter of time before we loose our right to speak out against government. Unless we repeal the unconstitutional legislation that has already been passed, we are in danger of loosing all of our Constitutional rights.

In December, unconstitutional power was given to the FCC to regulate the Internet, and enemies of the Constitution are proposing an Internet ID to monitor and censor individuals. It is accompanied by the Real ID Act that creates a “national database” of our personal data.

Under the Real ID Act, the Department of Homeland Security was given the power to decide what kind of card will be required and the extent of individual information that will be included in the database and on the card. The most shocking thing about the Real ID Act is that citizens will not be allowed to even open a bank account without this national ID card.

Moreover, the unconstitutional Patriot Act is once again up for consideration, and rumors abound that Congress is trying to re-authorize the so-called "PATRIOT" Act without scrutiny or debate.

The Patriot act is unconstitutional because it authorizes government wire-tapping and searches without due process or a court order. The Patriot Act took away our Constitutional right to freedom from unwarranted and unreasonable government searches, and it opened the door to abuse of power by government agencies.

You see the results of the Patriot Act and how the Department of Homeland Security, (vis-à-vis the TSA), has abused that authority. The DOHS used the Patriot Act to circumvent our Constitutional right to freedom from unwarranted and unreasonable search.

As a Natural Born citizen of the United States of America, I ask that you oppose reinstatement of the Patriot Act. I also ask that you support the repeal of the unconstitutional Real ID Act, and that you oppose the Internet ID Act, and demand that the FCC relinquish any and all claims of power to regulate or control the Internet.

This is ridiculous, we are not sheep.
The government is for the people by the people.The government needs to remember that they work for us.
What is this, Nazi Germany?! ("Show us your papers!!") The Real ID Act does not just federalize our driver’s licenses, but hands them over to the Department of Homeland Security. It calls for the creation of mammoth databases of information on law-abiding U.S. citizens. It places state Departments of Motor Vehicles (DMVs) in the position of having to become domestic spies—and it does so without any thought to the resources required, much less the dangers involved (e.g., of identity theft).
I am not for this. Don't need anymore stress.
A farcical misplacement of our priorities at this time.
I believe the REAL ID Act is unconstitutional based upon the 10th Amendment to the United States which states "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

The Supreme Court rarely declares laws unconstitutional for violating the Tenth Amendment. In the modern era, the Court has only done so where the federal government compels the states to enforce federal statutes.

Example, in 1998, the Court again ruled that the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act violated the Tenth Amendment (Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898 (1997)). The act required state and local law enforcement officials to conduct background checks on persons attempting to purchase handguns. Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, applied New York v. United States to show that the law violated the Tenth Amendment. Since the act "forced participation of the State's executive in the actual administration of a federal program", it was unconstitutional.

Since the Federal government is requiring new ID's it is in essence instructing states to enforce federal statutes in regards to identification documentation.
This is a freedom violation on every level. In a country run by the people we are telling our representatives that the answer is no.
Please repeal this act that serves no purpose other than to infringe on my rights and my privacy! I don't want to be part of a national data base!
any federal act/congressional act cannot be enforced within the union states. See United States v. Lopez 1995, also US v. Morrison this threw federal jurisdiction out of the Union States.
Its time to wake up to what is going on, before its too late.
