Tell Congress: Vote Against Drone Surveillance, Abuses!

Sen. Rand Paul is sponsoring legislation that protects individual privacy against unwarranted governmental intrusion through the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles commonly known as drones; his "Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act" will protect Americans' personal privacy.

"Like other tools used to collect information in law enforcement, in order to use drones a warrant needs to be issued. Americans going about their everyday lives should not be treated like criminals or terrorists and have their rights infringed upon by military tactics," Sen. Paul said.

The Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act also:

1.       Prohibits the use of drones by the government except when a warrant is issued for its use in accordance with the requirements of the Fourth Amendment.

2.       Includes the following exceptions:
          1) patrol of national borders;
          2) when law enforcement possesses reasonable suspicion that under particular
          circumstances, swift drone action is necessary to prevent "imminent danger to life;"
          3) high risk of a terrorist attack

3.       Allows any person to sue the government for violating this Act.

4.       Specifies that no evidence obtained or collected in violation of this Act can be used/admissible as evidence in a criminal, civil, or regulatory action.

This is inappropriate conduct that infringes upon the rights of the people of the United States of America. What this countries rights and freedoms stand for should not become tarnished. I plan to serve this beautiful country, and it's diverse people, and this is not what I want to be fighting for. God bless America and it's people.

This is NOT the way we do things here in America! Read carefully the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. (Just for your convenience I'll take the liberty to include): The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. This whole idea of mass drone surveillance need be withdrawn. Even the immigrants who fled their respective lands where this "police state" practice existed don't want this. We don't want to shred our Constitution any further, but rather embrace it, enforce current law without picking and choosing what "parts" of it to observe. Preserve the 4th amendment...embrace it!

The federal government needs to butt out of peoples business unless it has irrefutable evidence, and reasonable cause to suspect an unlawful act is occurring or will occur; then, obtain a legal warrant to move against the individual, or individuals involved: other wise the government and its agencies involved in the unlawful surveillance are the criminals violating the 4th amendment protections of the American people.
