On Returning To Constitutional Government


Resolution 13-07.12


WHEREAS the Bill of Rights is the principal document defining who we are as a people and the Fourth Amendment, protects our citizens from government intrusion into their affairs by banning unreasonable searches and seizures; and

WHEREAS the government's heretofore secret (but massive) collection of our phone and email without any reasonable cause to believe any crime has been committed has now been made public; and

WHEREAS the Patriot Act, authorized under President George W. Bush and continued under the Obama administration began and continued these offenses against the Bill of Rights;

BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party denounces such actions in no uncertain terms, and calls upon the Congress and this Administration to immediately halt such practices before they move us even further towards a totalitarian state.


Cosponsored by Malcom Burnstein and CDP Chairman John Burton
