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.

TAKE ACTION WITH CONSERVATIVE ACTION ALERTS AND TELL CONGRESS TO SUPPORT THE PRESERVING FREEDOM FROM UNWARRANTED SURVEILLANCE ACT! ADD YOUR NAME BELOW AND SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO LAWMAKERS.

Stop trying to turn us into a Police State. Last time I checked, YOU are supposed to represent US, not rule over us! We are a constitutional republic, not a democracy, and certainly not a dictatorship. Stop the monkeyshines.

Drones should NEVER be used on Americans on American soil, especially for spying purposes on citizens or the killing of Americans on or off American soil. The use WILL AS IT ALLWAYS DOES WITH GOVERNMENT become abusive. With all the EO's that Barack O. has had written & has signed it is clear he will without a doubt kill those who oppose his agenda...plain & simple he will...look at all he is doing, he wouldnt be signing all the EO's into supposed law unless he had plans to use those laws & use them against Americans who disagree with him. He is lying constantly to the American people to try to keep people believing his BS right up until the point he actually begins to implement each of his EO's. Then its all out war the war on terror that the government created to use in the future on Americans ...this is what this is all about. All I can say is American please stand togethere dont let Obama divide us, we will surely loose this war if we dont fight togethere , they know this...if we are divided we will not win, we must stand togethere to stop him.
