The federal government is once again infringing on your
civil liberties. A bipartisan group of congressmen are considering CISPA
legislation, which allows the National Security Agency to keep tabs on your personal
internet records. In the name of “cyber security,” CISPA allows and encourages private
companies to share personal user data with governmental entities and military
organizations. At best, this legislation is a huge invasion of privacy. At
worst, it creates yet another back-door, Orwellian surveillance program.
If the freedom movement does not take a principled stand
against this harmful legislation, private companies will have increased
authority to monitor your online activity and share this sensitive material
with the federal government – all without a warrant. And unsurprisingly, the
government will not be held to any standards of transparency or oversight: all data
collected by the government will be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.
Sign this petition
urging Congress to oppose CISPA. The internet must remain free. A free people
need a free flow of information.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from FreedomWorks.
