The 4th Amendment Protection Act






What can we do about the NSA and unconstitutional government Spying on American citizens? How can we protect our Fourth Amendment privacy rights?

We need to follow the Advice of Madison and Jefferson:  Act NOW on a state and local level, whether congress, the courts, or the President want us to or not.

State-level and local-level resistance and noncompliance is paramount. Thomas Jefferson advised the same. It’s not going to be easy, and there’s no guarantee of success. But, if we sit back and wait for the federal government to stop its own spying programs, we’ll wait forever. So, as those founders advised, we are taking action without the feds, and taking every step possible to create “obstructions,” and a “refusal to comply with officers of the Union,” as Madison advised.  

The Pennsylvania General Assembly needs to hear from you NOW!  This legislation needs a "prime-sponsor" to be even considered for a vote.  Please make sure inform your State Representative and State Senator about the 4th Amendment Protection Act.
