Change.org idea for second round
|The second round of the change.org Ideas for Change in America started on Monday, January 5; we can revise our idea between now and then. Change.org CEO Ben Rattray's advice: "We encourage you to make sure your idea states in compelling language: (1) the problem you're addressing and why it's important, and (2) your solution for what the government should do to address the problem."|
Current language below. As usual, there are discussion threads at the bottom of the page. Feedback, please!
Update, Jan 21: we added instructions on how to vote and (after a suggestion from Danielle on Facebook) three bulleted "asks" for Obama's actions in the first 100 days. This turned out to be hugely important, because our Idea for Change was delivered (along with the other top-10 finishers) to Macon Phillips of whitehouse.gov at a National Press Club event. Nothing like being specific!
Get FISA Right, repeal the PATRIOT Act, and restore our civil liberties
FISA and the PATRIOT Act strike at the core of our Fourth and First Amendment Rights and institutionalize a surveillance society -- and FISA's telecom immunity clause mocks the rule of law by not holding telecom companies accountable for any illegal actions. Beginning the new Administration and Congress by focusing on these issues sends one of the clearest signals possible that that the new government is committed to ending the abuses of the last eight years and restoring our civil liberties.
Please see my blog post the "Turning the Page on FISA" at http://criminaljustice.change.org/blog/view/turning_the_page_on_fisa for more.

See http://get-fisa-right.wetpaint.com/page/Change.org+idea+for+second+round for the current statement of our "idea for change". Can we make it more compelling by the time voting starts on Jan 5?
Do you find this valuable?
