One: Pass anti-troll patent reform
Two: Reform ECPA, and finally grant due process for e-mail privacy
Three: Reform our vague anti-hacking laws
Four: Bring out-of-control intel agencies to heel
Five: Do something on immigration
Six: Pass a strong, permanent “right to unlock” bill

“Do Nothing” Congress and deadlock between House and Senate / President is “good”.
Look at what happens when the R’s get control, we get “Homeland Security” and the TSA.
Look at what happens when the D’s get their way: Sarbox, NIJA mortgages, and bailouts galore.
Even if the current situation is “un en dur able”, they can make it worse.
