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.

This is criminal and NOT what I, as a United States citizen would expect from a government FOR the people. Knock it off . . . I have my rights under the Constitution.

ALL Americans, must STAND UP AND FIGHT against this sneaky, quickly escalating Orwellian movement being perpetuated upon the American people over the last 10 to 20 years, seemingly purposefully, by our government, by the military, the police, the TSA, Homeland Security and various corporations in this country. All are obscenely whittling away and redefining democracy - without a whimper from the American public or those who represent us in Congress! The government and the courts are redefining everything - right under our noses! And now they want to redefine the 1st and 4th amendments!! How is it that not one Congressman is saying NO to drones - No, period? Congress has been bamboozled! DRONES MUST NEVER EVER BE ALLOWED IN AMERICAN SKIES - PERIOD. To allow them is the beginning of the end for American society and the beginning of the end for global society as a whole. Our forefathers created the constitution to prevent exactly this! How did we ever get to this point! If you say yes to drones, then wave bye-bye to freedom because freedom will be out the window within 3 to 5 years! Drones will be the catalyst that creates an irreversible form of control on the part of our national and local governments and the police and everybody else. Everyone will be suspect - everyone will be considered criminal - just like the TSA does now in the airports. Is this really what you want America. STAND UP AND SAY NO TO DRONES - NO, PERIOD!

A reminder: Regardless of what the Communist in the White House thinks, it's supposed to a government "of, by, and for the people"—and NOT "of the government, by the government, and for the government."

Privacy is a right which if not protected will be defended by all means available. It will cost everyone more to defend than to protect. Please protect ours, and our children's rights. Thank you.
