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 drones flying America now are equipped with infra red vision and snooper microphones. They can see you and hear you in your bedroom when you're having sex. Do you really want that?

I'm a Democrat, upset by many things Obama has flip flopped on, but this takes the cake. Obama has ripped ALL trust from the ENTIRE political system. It's a shame I am telling this to you Republicans, but you guys aren't any better, this is about principle. Drones should NOT be flying over our airspace, Obama must have forgot, we own the airspace above our homes.. and any intruder of it is subject by LAW to be able to be shot down, and yes I will feel that my life is in danger if a drone flies above me, just as if a robber intrudes on my propery.

It is absolutely insulting and unlawful that the government is spying on its own people. A true American citizen is proud of their rights and YOU should defend them.

There is no need for them - it is all about control. They are very dangerous.

I believe that drones are very dangerous, as dangerous as having comets flying through the sky. The possibility of accidents is very real. Please protect the population by keeping the drones away from inhabited areas. Thank you. God bless you and yours.
