Force the unconstitutional Patriot Act to expire

From Campaign For Liberty:

Over the weekend, the liberty movement delivered some heavy blows in Round 1 against the surveillance statists.

And while three unconstitutional provisions of the so-called "Patriot" Act are closer than ever to expiring on midnight June 1, you can be sure we're in for the fight of our lives on Sunday, May 31.

It's time for the Senate to allow these provisions to expire.

But you can guarantee the surveillance state won't go down without a fight.

Right now, compromises are being negotiated, and deals are being cut.

That's why Campaign for Liberty needs to raise an additional $50,000 to keep our hard-hitting "Stop the Surveillance State Banner Bomb" running.

These ads are crucial to C4L being able to continue reaching millions of Americans about this important fight, targeting Senators who should be with us, but refuse to Stand with Rand in defense of our civil liberties.

With the USA FREEDOM Act only needing three more votes invoke cloture (parliamentary speak for moving forward with a bill), you and I have a much heavier lift than the statists trying to extend these authorities.

To stop the Obama-approved USA FREEDOM Act from being rammed through Sunday night, the American people must be heard loud and clear on Capitol Hill!

That's why in addition to running the hard-hitting banner ads on Facebook and Google in targeted states, I need 50,000 Patriots to sign their "I Object!" Citizen's Objection to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and their U.S. Senators.

And in order to have this program all in place to maximize the effect, you and I need to do this by Saturday, May 30, at midnight.

Five days to raise $50,000 and gather 50,000 objections to illegal NSA spying!

I know that's a high bar to set.

But each time I've called upon the liberty movement to act in the past, concerned Americans like you have risen to the occasion.

Thanks to Campaign for Liberty members like you, our "Stop the Surveillance State Banner Bomb" has been one of our most effective defensive battles.

As late as Friday night, Campaign for Liberty was still creating and purchasing new banner ads, adding more Senators to our target list.

The results of our program speak for themselves.

Despite pulling every procedural trick he could think of, Majority Leader McConnell was stunned at not even being able to get a short-term extension of the expiring "Patriot" Act surveillance provisions.

Senator Paul's objections to even a one day extension sent shockwaves across the nation.

Imagine when they hear these objections LOUD and CLEAR from Americans like you across the country!

After saying for weeks the Senate would not go home until the "Patriot" Act was reauthorized, in the early hours of Saturday morning, the Senate adjourned until May 31.

This strongly suggests the statists believe they can get the votes needed to ram the USA FREEDOM Act into law at the last minute.

And it's up to you and I to stop them.

I know that's a lot to ask, but with such a short time to raise the funds necessary for this program I'm counting on everyone to step up.

Of course, if $30 is too much, then please consider a generous contribution of $20 or at least $10 .

These funds will go toward keeping our hard-hitting "Stop the Surveillance State Banner Bomb" running well in to Round 2.

Then after you've made your most generous contribution, I'm counting on the liberty movement to generate as much pressure as we can, which is why I hope you'll sign your "I Object!" Citizen's Objection to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators.

This is our best opportunity yet since October 2001 to begin rolling back the surveillance state and reclaim our lost liberties.

But five days is all you and I have to do it.

So after you've donated to the Banner Bomb and signed your Citizen's Objection, won't you please forward this on to your friends and family and encourage them to take action?

We cannot let this opportunity slip through our grasp!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. This past weekend, my son Rand took a stand for the American people by objecting to any extension of the so-called "Patriot" Act -- even for one day.

Now it's time for you and I to stand up and let Congress know you object as well.

Please make your most generous contribution of $30 , $20 , or at least $10 today to help Campaign for Liberty turn up the heat on the U.S. Senate.
