The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit contesting the constitutionality of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Recently passed by both the House and Senate , FISA was signed into law on Thursday by President Bush. The ACLU has fought aspects of FISA in the past. The new complaint alleges the following:"The law challenged here supplies none of the safeguards that the Constitution demands. It permits the government to monitor the communications of U.S. Citizens and residents without identifying the people to be surveilled; without specifying the facilities, places, premises, or property to be monitored; without observing meaningful limitations on the retention, analysis, and dissemination of acquired information; without obtaining individualized warrants based on criminal or foreign intelligence probable cause; and, indeed, without even making prior administrative determinations that the targets of surveillance are foreign agents or connected in any way, however tenuously, to terrorism."
In other words, this nasty sh*t means that Uncle Sam can monitor you anytime, anywhere, with or without reason. Doesn't matter if you did anything wrong...
This is the biggest abuse of governmental powers since Watergate.
Isn't it about time we stopped sitting on our asses and ACTUALLY do something?
We just got a decision on the 2nd Amendment. So why don't we actually exercise it, like our founding fathers intended to?
We have a right to have a government who doesn't abuse the powers WE gave them..
We have a right to PROTEST these criminal acts by a power tripping prez.
So stop sitting on your asses and letting the media turn you into a veggie with their mind rot garbage...
FIGHT THE POWER!
Thanks for reading!
