We, the undersigned, are American citizens strongly opposed to the proposed "Security Systems Standards and Certification Act" (SSSCA), which would force all new consumer electronics devices and personal computers to have government-mandated "policeware" built-in.

This proposed policeware would restrict what we can and cannot do with our own personal computers in our own homes and businesses. Any person who disables this policeware would be subject to five years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine.

We believe this proposed bill is a severe threat to the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. The very idea of forcing government policeware into our homes and businesses, and jailing those who tamper with or refuse to run this policeware on their own private computers, is terribly wrong and completely contrary to both the letter and spirit of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

We urge you, our elected representatives, to defeat the proposed SSSCA, and will take your actions regarding this bill into account when you stand for re-election.
