    The fisa amendments act turned the fisa Court into a dangerous tool to hand out blanket warrants from a closed court. These have been used on numerous occasions to surveil American citizens, in direct contravention of our rights, and the original intention of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

    This authorises the worst domestic spying abuses of the expiring law. Further restriction is needed instead. Reject this offense to citizens' rightful freedom to privacy from our own government.
