Civil Liberties

Would you want to live in a world where everyone knew everything about everyone?

And in case you’re wondering, that’s not where we’re headed. Instead, we’re blindly marching towards a dark future where the government knows everything about you but you know nothing about the government.

Remember the media’s hysterical outcry when Obama’s passport details were illegally accessed during the Democratic primaries in 2008? The fact that the privacy of regular citizens is routinely subjected to much more serious abuse was conveniently ignored.

The “Patriot” Act, which was supposed to fight terrorism, allows the government to snoop on average citizens, obtain nationwide search warrants without local judicial oversight, monitor private Internet usage (that includes our emails and surfing habits), search our homes and offices without our knowledge, and force libraries and bookstores to turn over our reading records.

There is no financial privacy left in this country. Banks have become a one stop shop for overzealous government snoops and other privacy violators, and we’ve been working overtime to impose our paranoid “Know Your Customer” standards on the rest of the world.

Medical privacy has deteriorated in a similar manner. Our medical records are being transcribed in India and insurance companies and other entities have the right to access our medical history any time they choose.

Ron Paul is one of the nation’s foremost defenders of our privacy. He keeps fighting against misguided Know Your Customer rules and the misnamed “Patriot” Act.

Join the Ron Paul Revolution and help us rebuild a nation where our right to be left alone has priority over the government’s desire to know everything.

    Riverside County Sheriffs posted to me on a comment page. How Hold Bold are they! I am trying to get support for an innocent man and they have scared everyone one off who has tried to help me. I would say this is a veiled threat to my brother or me! This is what he said. I clipped and pasted it:

    man do you do anything but spout cliches and senseless slogans? A gang of cops shot your brother, Jennifer, not me;—and I dare say they intended to kill him. You should consider this fact carefully…. Don’t spew your bile at the messenger. Your brother lived in a damn trailer. Sounds ‘Third World’ to me.

    I could use some help please

    Privacy from the government and from companies is one right that continues to need monitoring by the public and independent organizations. Without any checks, more and more privacy will be taken away from us.
