I think this is completely absurd. If all our information is going to be accessible by the government, our freedom will be stripped right before our eyes. They say it for protection, our protection. But, maybe we need to protect ourselves from the government. Maybe the government is taking our power away from us. I feel like in a few decades, our government will be very different and in a bad way. We may have to start another battle in order to take back our freedom and gain our rights again. DOWN WITH CISPA! Unless you want all your online actions to be monitored by the government. Any treasonous word, any threatening comment towards powerful people will allow them to access all your information. What did our country fight for, if not our freedom of speech and press?

US Congress is trying to pass a law, CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act), that will give them the power to monitor what we do online! Facebook and Microsoft are also supporting this law. How disappointing…
“Right now, the US Congress is sneaking in a new law that gives them big brother spy powers over the entire web — and they’re hoping the world won’t notice. We helped stop their Net attack last time, let’s do it again.
Over 100 Members of Congress are backing a bill (CISPA) that would give private companies and the US government the right to spy on any of us at any time for as long as they want without a warrant. This is the third time the US Congress has tried to attack our Internet freedom. But we helped beat SOPA, and PIPA — and now we can beat this new Big Brother law.
Our global outcry has played a leading role in protecting the Internet from governments eager to monitor and control what we do online. Let’s stand together once again — and beat this law for good. Sign the petition then forward to everyone who uses the Internet!”
