Did you see this?? Google 'Pressure Cookers' and 'Backpacks,' Get a Visit from the Cops
A woman searches the Internet for information about pressure cookers. Her husband checks out backpacks online. Then...six law enforcement investigators show up at their home and start asking questions.
But the government assures us no one is reading our emails or spying on our Internet searches. They are just collecting data -- a LOT of it -- in case they need it to protect us.
Yes, government has a responsibility to protect us, but it also has a rather solemn obligation to protect this, the 4th Amendment to the Constitution:
“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.”
Clearly, the President and Congress aren’t interested in protecting the 4th Amendment. They are the ones attacking it. So...It’s up to you and me. Will you help me?
America has fought wars and shed blood to defend the liberties embodied in the Constitution. But who’s defending those liberties now? It certainly isn’t the politicians. That’s why the Our America Initiative has launched a special Live Free Project specifically to mobilize and give voice to Americans who are ready to push back against the assault on our freedoms. Your contribution today at Stand Up 4 the 4th will help us knock on the government’s doors before they come knocking on ours -- just because somebody in the house Googled “pressure cookers”.
This week, I was on the Mike Huckabee Show talking about the NSA and other threats to liberty. Next week I will be in Los Angeles for more events and national media appearances. That’s my job with the Our America Initiative -- to speak up and speak out. But I can’t do it alone. We need to reach millions of Americans and help them take action.
Liberty IS under attack, and the politicians won’t stop until we stand up and speak out loudly enough that they HAVE to listen. You and I can make that happen. I’m ready. Are you?
I look forward to hearing from you. We have a great deal of work to do.
Gov. Gary Johnson
P.S. With your help, we CAN restore the 4th Amendment’s protections. But we can’t wait. Go to Stand Up 4 the 4th today and help us do some door knocking of our own.
About Governor Gary Johnson: A two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, Gary Johnson has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. As the Libertarian candidate for President in 2012, he received more votes than any Libertarian candidate in history. An outspoken pro-Constitution libertarian, Johnson opposes American involvement in foreign conflicts with no clear U.S. interest. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. Johnson advocates cutting federal spending dramatically to achieve a balanced budget and make government live within its means without raising taxes. He believes real job creation and economic opportunity can be best achieved through smaller government and less regulation. The National Review rated Johnson as "#1" in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on five of the seven continents, including Mount Everest and, recently, Aconcagua in Argentina.
