Blueprint to Nullify the NSA: 4th Amendment Protection Act

For far too long, Americans blindly obeyed the “national security” experts at the cost of personal liberty.

Fortunately a healthy trend of defiance has been eclipsing that mindset and the Fourth Amendment is making a comeback.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Never before has the Fourth Amendment been under such assault as by the National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA has a secret spying program that’s not so secret now thanks to whistleblower Edward Snowden. Once Americans learned their online, phone, and texting communications were being watched and stored without probable cause or a warrant, they demanded accountability. Polls from Quinnipiac, Pew, Rassmussen, and others all show Americans don’t trust their liberty under this so-called anti-terrorism policy.

Division of power makes America great, and protects the liberty our founders dreamed of and fought for. The role of states isn’t to simply salute and follow federal orders. The Fourth Amendment Protection Act instructs the people’s state officials on how to deal with federal officials enforcing unconstitutional surveillance.
