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.

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.

The FAA has stagnated for years trying to advance in a droneless environment, so matter how long and hard they study a coexistence where political hubris and citizens' apathy towards real oversight, they will nonetheless launch them at whim. Insane aviation regression, "collateral" collisions and death, all thanks to Big Brother. "Oversight", in Washington? It's the thought that counts, but let's drop that Section 2.2 "catch all" .
