Rep. Amash: ‪Not Enough Votes in Congress to Reauthorize PATRIOT Act

Rep. Amash: ‪Not Enough Votes in Congress to Reauthorize PATRIOT Act

By Activist Post

Michigan Congressman Justin Amash took to Facebook earlier today to inform the public about the inner workings of alleged surveillance reform.

Amash states that the latest version of the USA Freedom Act does not prevent the government’s illegal surveillance on Americans.

He also said “There are not enough votes in Congress to reauthorize it,” referring to the PATRIOT Act which is set to expire in about a month,

Amash writes on his Facebook page:

The latest ‪USA Freedom Act‬ does NOT end the government’s unconstitutional bulk collection of private data on Americans. Congress should not mislead the public.

House leadership has no leverage to stop genuine surveillance reform. The ‪Patriot Act‬, which has been used to spy on all Americans, expires on June 1. There are not enough votes in Congress to reauthorize it.

Members of Congress who favor surveillance reform should quit the defeatism. The USA Freedom Act is not the best we can do. We have the American people on our side, and we have all the leverage.

Land Owners Win Right to Challenge Feds Over Control of Private Property

1835 Original Seal for MichiganLand Owners WIN RIGHT to Challenge Reds Over Control of Private Property
When 56 men placed their lives on the line when they signed the Declaration of Independence, they did so with the intent of providing Americans the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Also among those rights was the right to own and control property.

Under a socialist government, few people have the right to own and control property. The government assumes ownership and control of private property, depriving the people of the rights that we value here in the United States.

However, as our government has started adopting socialistic agendas, they have followed the patterns of other socialist nations. One of those patterns is taking control of private property by means of the Environmental Protections Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers.

In 2012, I wrote about how the Army Corp of Engineers sought to control 20 acres of privately owned desert land by deeming a dry desert wash as a waterway of the United States of America. Peter and Frankie Smith from the Santa Fe, New Mexico area took the Army Corps of Engineers to court over the issue.
