U.S. Rep. Justin Amash from Grand Rapids has been a leader in the Congress on the issue of the federal government spying on ordinary, everday citizens. He says they are also reading the e-mails of everybody in this country.
Here's an idea: Why not just add the feds to my cc: list so my emails go directly to them? Why not?
It's time to let the U.S. Congress know that it has gone too far. Our federal spy network needs to rein it in. At one time, privacy was a commonly-held value that was guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.
Here's what Amash said today in a Tweet:
