Losing our rights

Published: Monday, Aug. 5, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

Too many nefarious actions by the U.S. government have been happening lately in regard to American citizens’ constitutional rights and freedoms – from the Patriot Act’s violation of the Fourth Amendment to President Obama stating he can kill American citizens without due process to the National Defense Authorization Act authorizing unlawful indefinite detentions to the National Security Agency spying on all Americans.

These are but a few items. There are many that more I could list.

These usurpations to our constitutional rights have to end. I urge all freedom-loving citizens to contact your congressman and let him or her know that we will no longer tolerate our rights being stripped away.
