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?
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.
