On July 4th, Tell The Government To Restore The 4th Amendment
from the restore-the-4th dept
On the Fourth of July, we're supposed to remember the freedoms we've always believed this country stood for. We normally do this by doing things like watching fireworks. Perhaps this July 4th, it would be wise to think about all that the government has been doing to stamp out the 4th Amendment with things like secret courts, secret interpretations of the law, and vast dragnets of information gathering on the public by a duplicitous federal government, who still refuses to give a straight story on what it's doing, and under what legal authority. It's time that stopped, and the only way that's going to happen is if people speak up and let the government know that they believe in the 4th Amendment, and what's being done by the NSA, the DOJ, the FBI and the intelligence-industrial complex has gone way beyond what is acceptable, and the American people demand that it comes to an immediate end.
