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.

Every elected representative takes a sacred oath to protect and defend the Constitution. The unconstitutional use of drones to surveil private citizens fails to respect our rights to privacy, illegal search and seizure and demands you outrightly reject this illegal activity instead of encouncing it in law. Reject the passage of this criminal use to taxpayer funds to deny constitutional rights. thank you

Flying drones over American citizens homes may be looked at as an act of war. We may have to act accordingly if we feel threatened. Stay away from our homes. It's none of your business what we are doing or not doing.

I have been beside myself over this kind of thing going on in my Country. I feel like I need to say to Obummer that you are a trader to everything we believe in. As so, you and all who helped you to get where you are should be in Jail. Treason is your middle name and jail is where you need to stay.

Remember, it's Of the people, By the people, For the people. Spying on citizens drives a wedge between the people and our government. We will vote out those who advocate Big Brother.
