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.

Unbelievable!! I thought I was buying a piece of paradise in the woods where I could work on my land, plant trees, and have privacy to raise my son. We cant even walk outside at night without 20 to30 drones UAV's hovering above us. God forbid you shoot a 22 rifle with your son or gather firewood to build a fire lest you want 100 or more hovering above you! This will be the downfall of this country. Perhaps this what Mr. Obama is trying to do. It sure seems to be the case. I am ashamed of this administration and hope the people of this country wake up before its too late. Jerry B Pope

Stop using drones to spy on, and to kill, American citizens and human beings. The drone program is a predatory action of terrorism by the US against its own people. It is crime, it is a threat of bodily harm to the public, and it cannot be tolerated.

Drones and supplemented by a rotation of Military Reservists (their mandatory annual 2 weeks) on our Borders is the ONLY legitimate use for the Police or Military to use Drones on American soil!!
