Shit. I didn’t think contacting my State reps would be so nerveracking
But I did it and I feel pretty damned good about it.
Guys, if you haven’t already done so CONTACT YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVES ABOUT CISPA!
What is CISPA? It stands for the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Yeah. Don’t like the sound of that? I suggest you read more and do something about it now. This act is up for vote SOON, SO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT NOW. MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.
CISPA IS AN OUTRIGHT VIOLATION OF PRIVACY AND THE FOURTH AMENDMENT. DON’T WANT THE COMPANIES THAT PROVIDE COMMUNICATIONS TO FREELY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION AND PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS AND POSSIBLY DEEM YOU AS A CYBERTHREAT FROM HOWEVER YOUR PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS ARE CHOSEN TO BE INTERPRETED? Then make your voice heard. You don’t even need to get up from your computer chair, unless your phone is out of reach.
Call me a paranoid crazy, but it feels to me like everyday large corporations and our own government is pushing to make the Thought Police a reality. While I support the intent of the bill, the language makes it too easy to punish the wrong people by labeling innocent individuals as “inconvenient”. Let’s keep post-apocalyptic stories a fantasy, shall we?

Remember. The world is what we make of it. Freedom isn’t free. Freedom is the reward for how hard we defend it.
