Those who would trade security for liberty

People are willing to give up liberties for vague promises of security because they think they have no choice. What they're not being told is that they can have both. It would require people to say no to the FBI's power grab. It would require us to discard the easy answers in favor of thoughtful answers. It would require structuring incentives to improve overall security rather than simply decreasing its costs. Designing security into systems from the beginning, instead of tacking it on at the end, would give us the security we need, while preserving the civil liberties we hold dear.

--Bruce Schneier, in his Crypto-gram Special Issue

Check out http://www.indefenseoffreedom.org/ and consider signing on, or having an organization sign on.
Contact your Congressional representative (I am without one) and try and explain the issue (pointers in Cryptogram).

I should probably write my Senator(s) instead
