Hey Congress! The NSA isn’t the Only People Watching You!

It has been reported that Rep. Justin Amash’s amendment (H.R. 2399: LIBERT-E Act) to:

End authority for the blanket collection of records under the Patriot Act. Bars the NSA and other agencies from using Section 215 of the Patriot Act to collect records, including telephone call records, that pertain to persons who are not subject to an investigation under Section 215.

is going to be voted on in the House.

One of my major concerns since the announcement of the broad NSA spying programs is that elected officials would be prime candidates for manipulation by the data collected – thereby placing the control of the government in the hands of the US spying regime.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell Congress that the NSA isn’t the only body of people watching them. So are WE.

Thanks foontala, I've included it in the post...

Appreciate it!

Thank you for the post! I

Thank you for the post! I didn't know about it until I read it from you. I have been going all over the Daily Paul posting information about it. Sadly, some other post on this topic is now on the front page, which makes it seem like only a few people care about this issue. The fact that there are several versions of the same post means that the voting for the "best post" gets diminished. In addition to having fewer votes, the post chosen for the front page does not have the bill number.

We need everyone to come together here, especially on this issue. I wish that they would consolidate the information from all the people who posted this, and put it on the first post, giving credit to all of the people who posted, adding up all the votes from all the different posts, and then placing a single post with all the votes and information at the very top of the front page.
