While Continuing Our Voice in Patriot Act Debate, PRCB Fights the Administration's Warrantless Domestic Spying Program
A Message from Chairman Bob Barr

From ignoring federal laws and circumventing judicial due process to secret programs spying on Americans' private communications and personal records without warrants, the administration has repeatedly and severely abused its power. We have so far learned that the administration has been obtaining both telephone and financial records without court warrants, unabashedly dismissing both precedent and the laws governing this country. With the public and even Congress in the dark, these invasions of privacy represent a serious betrayal of the American people's trust and a dangerous expansion of executive powers that could haunt our country for decades to come.

Patriots to Restore Checks and Balances (PRCB) will not stand idly by while the Constitution of the United States of America is compromised.

PRCB's current mission is twofold: (1) to preserve America's system of checks and balances and its separation of powers; and (2) to push Congress to undertake a thorough investigation into the Executive Branch's practice of monitoring Americans without court warrants.

This coalition's influence in the halls of Congress became evident during the recent Patriot Act reauthorization debate, when PRCB shaped the public dialogue on the subject and emerged as a leading voice for limited government and meaningful checks and balances. I am confident that with the help of concerned citizens such as yourself, we will successfully protect the Constitution and the rights of ordinary Americans no matter which party controls the White House or Congress. The Founding Fathers' legacy of liberty, privacy, property rights and the rule of law should not be partisan issues. The need for checks and balances transcends temporary politics.

We invite you to join us in our efforts to restore checks and balances to the American government. As a member, you will be included in our mailing list and will receive periodic updates and calls to action from PRCB. We appreciate your interest and support as we move forward with the most important mission any true patriot can undertake: Protecting the fundamental freedoms of all American citizens.

Sincerely,

Bob Barr
Chairman, Patriots to Restore Checks and Balances
Former Member of the U.S. House of Representatives
