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.– Fourth Amendment, U.S. Constitution
And yet, they are taking your data, searching your emails, listening to conversations… without a warrant. Without any actual reason. Without even notifying you that you have been watched. They can even arrest you, and hold you without charges indefinitely if they like. Or throw you in a “secret court” and charge you with a crime, and stick you in prison.
For national security? How is this securing us? By making us afraid of our own government?
Go to Today We Fight Back and send an email, make a phone call, make your voice heard. DO IT NOW! It only takes a few minutes of your time to make your feelings known.
