Millions of concerned citizens believe the U.S. government’s mass surveillance has exceeded the bounds of legality, morality, and efficacy. But for Congress to take action, surveillance reform needs grassroots support. Once upon a time, the US helps set the standard for acceptable behavior. It’s time for the US to start acting like the ethical Internet steward that it once was.
The Surveillance State Repeal Act was introduced in the U.S. House of representatives by Rep. Holt, Rush [D-NJ-12]. It was referred to the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections where it awaits action. The Surveillance State Repeal Act would roll back constitutional abuses with a hard reset of the US government’s surveillance powers. But for Congress to take action, surveillance reform needs grassroots support.
I suggest all Americans should read the Surveillance State Repeal Act at https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/2818 and then write to your representatives.
