Grant Paulson started this petition to U.S Congress

The Freedom Act failed to scale back the surveillance of the American People. The amount of requests for user data has grown every single year since the Freedom Act was passed. 

The American People have no due process. The NSA and tech companies are able to collect and sell your data without the public having any say in what data is collected. The Act also requires that the NSA must go to FISA court to request phone records. However, the FISA court has approved 99.97% of all requests between 1978 and 2013. The Act also limited the collecting of data to only two people connected to their original user which is not a big enough step in the right direction. 

Next, the Freedom Act, specifically the USA Freedom Reauthorization Act, allows law enforcement to collect information without a warrant. The only approval it needs is from FISA which we previously talked about. The Reauthorization act also failed to prohibit warrantless surveillance of internet search and browsing records. In the words of Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) "Without further reform of these vague and dangerous Patriot Act authorities, Congress is inviting more secret interpretations of the law and more abuses."

In the digital age, I am asking you to stand up against the mass collection of our data. While it may be limited, we never know what is going on behind the scenes. And "We The People" deserve to know.
