Tell U.S. Senators: Stop CISPA!

Please, help Conservative Action Alerts keep your information safe and private, and away from government agencies!

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act would annul each and every American’s natural right to privacy by giving big businesses the power to hand over their users’ private, sensitive information to government agencies.

The bill, S. 624, unashamedly states that big businesses are exempt from honoring and abiding by privacy laws: On page 4, line 5, the bill says that “notwithstanding any other provision of law," businesses may share user information "with any other entity … or other appropriate agency or department of the Federal Government."

This means your emails, text messages, chat logs, bank statements, web searches, eBay purchases, documents in the cloud, etc. are all subject to being turned over to government for any reason under the sun, so long as the information can be construed as a “threat” to cybersecurity.

>The crux of the matter is this: you have a natural right to privacy and government has no authority to violate it. The right of privacy – or, what our founders called “security” – existed long before the formation of the United States and is not a gift of government, but of God. This is why the founders codified this right in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, which states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

CISPA clearly violates the Fourth Amendment, thus, Lawmakers – those individuals who swore an oath to defend the Constitution and serve the people – have absolutely no business supporting the terrible piece of legislation. 

Congress is bound to protect our privacy – or, as Justice Louis Brandeis called it “the right to be left alone” – not trade it in for a scheme of false security.

Take Action! Sign the petition and message your U.S. Senators demanding they OPPOSE the “Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act” and DEFEND digital privacy!

Votes: CISPA passed the House of Representatives 228-127 on Thursday, April 18, 2013.

As a wise man once said "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." I quite agree with Benjamin Franklin. Freedom and liberty out ways safety every time.
