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 USA is not a Combat Zone where enemy movement is critical to survival.UAVs should not be used for any other purpose than track enemy movement and Movement of Terrorists. NOT INNOCENT CIVILIANS IN THEIR OWN HOMES AND YARDS.

This is so close to the late 1930's When Hitler promoted the Nazi take over of Europe and no one was concerned

The founders of our country apparently were right! A time could come when Americans could lose the freedoms that had been won for them in a past time.

Why can't we leave the drones for the military in other countries? People need a LITTLE bit of privacy here in our country.

The U.S. citizen is not the enemy, but if this nbid for dictatorship is not stopped, they may very well be forced into that position. The only difference is, they will be enemies of the usurpers, not of the country in which they live.

I am very much against the use of drones, except as mentioned above. Americans' personal privacy must be protected. We, the people, should not be treated like criminals or terrorists when going about our every-day-lives. We are protected by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Thanks for listening to me.
