Surveillance Intrusions

The United States Government claims a broad and sweeping authority, under the Patriot Act to collect a record of every single phone call made by every single American "on an ongoing daily basis." This program not only exceeds the authority of the government by Congress, but it violates the right of privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment, and the rights of free speech and association protected by the First Amendment.

Despite how many demands have been made to the NSA and other organizations operating under the Patriot Act, no actual reports of the extent of these intrusions have been given or any sufficient information provided to govern the limits of the extent of the surveillance on American citizens.

What I don't understand is how the American People can stand by and allow this to happen. If enough people rally under a banner of ACCOUNTABILITY the United States Government, The National Security Agency and all of the other organizations hiding behind the Patriot Act will have to cease and desist these unconstitutional broad-spectrum intrusions into our privacy and will be held accountable for the past decade of lawless behavior.

Stand up for your rights as American Citizens. If you don't ... who will?
