#Restorethe4th Livestream

So, I hope everyone got to at least watch a little bit of this past Tuesday’s Livestream with representative Justin Amash and YAL National President Cliff Maloney! The Livestream had a pretty decent turnout. I think we had a little over 200 people tune in! Hell, even a few of the friends I got togetheer! I loved seeing the reaction throughout the Livestream, and I especially love Mr. Amash’s statement: “If you’re not doing anything wrong your government shouldn’t be spying on you!” I mean I know that in this day & age that’s a novel concept, but isn’t that the truth? I don’t remember any stipulation in the 4th Amendment that said, “If we think you’re up to something we can violate your rights.” In fact, here’s the 4th:

“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.”

Yet, as we know, especially after Snowden, government agencies, most notably the NSA, violate this fundamental American right almost routinely! It’s inspiring to see so many who are willing to stand against this tyranny. A system of fear has been created over the last 20 years to where we now see enemies at every corner, wars are being waged without constitutional approval, and fundamental human rights are being violated without question. Enough is enough! Let’s Restore the 4th!
