Has anything been done to stop the NSA from monitoring calls since it was discovered they are doing it? Is it still going on while our representatives argue, banter, lollygag and try and sweep it under the carpet where no one will see what's going on? Is it continuing while we argue over its validity?

www.aclu.org/dontspy.

Millions of Americans have had their telephone records monitored and their privacy invaded. Chances are, you are one of them. Under an unprecedented and illegal secret arrangment, phone companies like AT&T and Verizon have reportedly been handing their customer’ phone records over to the National Security Agency.

This is a violation of the law. It is a violation of customer trust. And it’s a violation of Americans’ expectation that the government will not pry into their lives without probable cause. It must be stopped - or where will it end?

Instant government access to every single phone call you and millions of other Americans have made in the last few years - think about what that means. Access to the phone records of political opponents, news reporters, and potential whistle blowers. Calls to friends, family, associates, lovers. Calls to medical specialists.

It is not up to AT&T, Verizon or any other phone company to decide what the government gets to see - our representatives in Congress have passed laws, and they must be followed.

You can help put a stop to this illegal spying right now.

STOP THIS ABUSE OF POWER NOW. FILE A COMPLAINT.

To file a complaint about this assault on your privacy, go to: www.aclu.org/dontspy. The ACLU is filing complaints with the Federal Communications Commission, and, wherever possible, with state telepone regulators (public utility commissions), which have the power to stop privacy violations.

It's crazy why, it isn't. I have this feeling that the right has its head so far in the sand, searching for security, that it accepts this as a means of catching the big bad terrorists. That 29% is fixated on the idea that anything and anyone that questions the tactics our leaders are using is showing weakness in Americans; You know -Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel, and in this case it is willing to sacrifice our freedoms and liberty for security. In this case we see our entire democracy disintegrating for the sake of a few sand fleas.

What a phony drama we've encounter.

Help the ACLU in their fight for American democracy and justice.
