I know this has other threads but this link might help.
It only takes a minute to contact your Senators (you have two) to ask them not to vote in favor of CISPA.
It got even worse by amendment.passing through the House
I think we are screwed unless we fight and this is the only way I know how. Big talk here doesn't help.
Make contact politely but firmly if you value your freedom.

My name is (removed). I'm a full time college student attending (removed) here in Springfield. In addition to pursuing a degree, I'm very active online with a number of sites for political topics and the state of affairs in our nation today. I've come to be a student after one full career has come and closed along with the life experience that has brought me. It is in this context I write this today.
The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection act is of top concern to me and my family. I not only participate very heavily in online political discourse and debate but I moderate at one site while operating my own websites which this new law may in some way come to negatively impact.
I joined in the last large scale protest online against the SOPA and PIPA legislative efforts which I read as very similar to this one we're now seeing move through. I'm afraid that in defeating SOPA and PIPA in a very broad show of public opposition, those same people are too busy now to so quickly rejoin the battle over this bill.
As a constituent and a voter who helped elect you in this past election, I respectfully request that you take an extra moment to read this piece of legislation and consider it in the context of how such a law fits in with our Representative Republic and Freedom. As Americans have always had to balance the needs of security and defense, I understand the position Government leadership faces today. This would seem to represent a step beyond where that balance lay, when taken in context to everything else happening in the world and our nation today.
I appreciate your time in considering this,
