Tell Congress: Defend Privacy, Rein In NSA

"What will become of us if the feds can watch our every move and hear our every conversation and learn our every expenditure and read our every email and find out what we eat and whom we love and how we live?"- Judge Andrew Napolitano

“What will become of us if the feds can watch our every move and hear our every conversation and learn our every expenditure and read our every email and find out what we eat and whom we love and how we live?”- Judge Andrew Napolitano

With the federal government regularly surveilling phone metadata, emails, and other forms of digital communication, it's time for U.S. lawmakers to stand up, defend our privacy, and end the NSA's unconstitutional spying.

Reps. Justin Amash, John Conyers, and Patriot Act author Jim Sensenbrenner are sponsoring comprehensive legislation to rein in the National Security Agency and curb their sweeping surveillance powers.

Their bill, the USA FREEDOM Act, would:

- modify section 215 of the Patriot Act to end mass unwarranted surveillance and restore probable cause;
- require the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to provide lawmakers with court opinions and policies, thereby ending "secret" laws;
- allow internet and telecommunications companies to make public the number of NSA requests they have received;
- establish an office for a "privacy advocate" to represent the interests of Americans and their privacy before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court; and
- close domestic and foreign loopholes by modifying Title IV and section 702(b) of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

With the NSA’s misinterpretation (abuse) of law – providing them “allowance” to spy on anyone anywhere – it’s clear this legislation is needed to start ending government’s ugly, unconstitutional surveillance programs.

We need to rally lawmakers right away and demand that they get behind this needed legislation in defense of our privacy.

Take Action! Sign the petition and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to sponsor the USA FREEDOM Act -- not Feinstein's "fake fix" --  and curb the National Security Agency’s broad, warrantless surveillance powers!

Millions of men and women did not serve in our military defending us, just to have a bunch of politicians allow illegal wire/email/phone surveillance by our government.
