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!

Please respect and abide by our Constitution which assures our privacy. Don't compromise the privacy of ALL to get information on a few. There are other security measures other than tapping our phones and e -mails.

I fully understand the philosophy of what the NSA's job is! But to what extent? 99.9 percent of Americans have done nothing wrong and never will! So why are we all being monitored? Govt's britches are way to big and needs to be reined in now before it is to late and you take all our civil liberties away! Were close if not already there now!!! Monitoring my calls, emails, etc is just not worthwhile! If when the Feds can't even use good Intel they already had to stop what happened in Boston what in the hell is the reasoning of doing this to every American that has never been in any trouble at all with the Law? Again here we go with big Govt. telling us what we need! I can tell you what I don't need but what is the use of that? You don't listen to rational people anyway!!!

We are now being ruled by a tin pot dictator called Obama with no restraint placed on him by Congress. Obama supports terrorist, disses our friends sends billion to our enemies, assaults the Constitution, tracks political enemies like Conservatives, Tea Part, Christians, veterans, Constitutionalist. Has made the founding fathers and Christians the enemies of the state in DOD manuals and training of military. Has declared America a Muslim State. Is going after the 1st and 2nd amendments and what does Congress do - he didn't lie about Obamacare he just misspoke or lets just roll over and play dead. That is what anyone who disagrees with his policies will probably be soon.
