Tell Congress: Restore our Fourth Amendment protections!

Americans are losing the right to privacy and their private property rights.

At every turn, Americans are losing the right to privacy and their private property rights.

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Kentucky v. King essentially revokes the Fourth Amendment by allowing law enforcement to enter private property without a warrant, and by giving TSA agents the authority to demand that innocent Americans remove their clothing in front of the public.

Further, the astounding fact that the federal government ordered Verizon to hand it hundreds of millions of private phone records is also an important reminder that our constitutionally-protected rights have essentially been declared null by government actions.

Knowing that the National Security Agency has easy access to massive amounts of information held by major internet service and communication companies – records that detail millions of individuals ’ private data – is evidence that our Fourth Amendment is essentially not a fact in the digital world.

The unconstitutional powers given to government by certain provisions of the Patriot Act and the Supreme Court are now being realized, and stand to prove that the Fourth Amendment “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures” is a near-farce. 

We must demand Congress to uphold the Fourth Amendment our individual rights to be secure in our “person, papers, and effects” in both physical and non-physical environments. We must demand Congress to work enact legislation that formally recognizes the wholesale supremacy of the Fourth Amendment – that is, the protection of privacy and private property from unwarranted searches and seizures – in the physical world, as well as extending its authority to protect private information in the realms of communications, finance, and the digital world as a whole.  

When a 6-year-old child is forced to remove their T-shirt in public during a TSA screening, or when a 95-year-old leukemia patient is asked to remove her Depends undergarment, then you cannot ignore the fact that the government has gone too far in dismantling our Fourth Amendment protections.

When the FBI and NSA can easily surveil staggering amounts of private data – without suspicion or probable cause – held by third party communications and internet service companies, there can be no legitimate privacy.   

Governing authorities should never have the right to wield power over citizens simply because they can. The disturbing actions coming from the TSA, the NSA, the FBI, and some law-enforcement officials are completely unacceptable!

Take action! Sign the petition and send a free message to Congress demanding that the Fourth Amendment be preserved and recognized across the board!

The Lord God Almighty gave Jesus Christ life & death for you to see how to live, even in Heaven eternally & He sees all & knows true motives and will judge all at some point for rewards, or lack there of, or hell eternally; so repent of being born a sinner and ask forgiveness because God will then empower you (as you ask daily and sincerely) to do what is right in His eyes according to the Holy Bible and His Holy Spirit and Truth in History shown again and again.
