This is a resolution passed at the March 16, 2002 LNC meeting.

Whereas, securing our liberties and protecting our rights are among the primary purposes of the United States government,

And, whereas, the acts of September 11, 2001 have made threats to the security of the United States a priority issue in the minds of government officials and the general public,

And, whereas, in response to those acts the United States government has enacted the USA Patriot Act, which sacrifices many of our liberties and curtails many of our rights in the name of military security thereby compromising some of the purposes for which that government was created,

And, whereas, we do not support sacrificing our liberties and curtailing our rights in the name of military security,

Be it resolved that the Libertarian National Committee calls for the repeal of the USA Patriot Act.
