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!

When private citizens break the law, they go to jail. When politicians break the law, they go unpunished. Why?

Had the NSA used all the technology, time, energy, manpower and money on tracking and ferreting out terrorists, gangbangers, drug cartel members and organized crime members instead of spying on law abiding citizens of this country and our ally countries, the rate of terrorism and crime in the world and in our nation would have dropped probably by 80 percent. This is an organization that has knowingly, willfully, deliberately and repeatedly trampled on our Constitution and our Constutional rights and liberties and has embarrassed this nation in front of the world. It is time to tether and muzzle the NSA and the Obama administration who knew what was going on and validated it.
