Civil Liberties & Protection

Do you believe that you have a right to have a government who doesn’t spy on you?

Are you worried that all our constitutional freedoms are slowly being chipped away?

Yes, I believe our civil liberties are under attack. Our right to privacy, guaranteed by the 4th Amendment of the Constitution, is constantly under attack by overreaching intelligence agencies and big tech monopolies that falsely invoke national security to take away our civil liberties, privacy, and freedoms.

Tulsi's record:

Quotes

  • We have to remember that the first casualty of war is often our constitutional rights, our civil liberties, and privacy. We saw how in the previous Cold War, suspicion and government surveillance of American civilians increased. We remember the House Committee on Unamerican Activities. We got a glimpse of how our society changed when we look back to that McCarthy era, and we see the invasive activities of the FBI at that time. And then we look today with technology, the broad reach of surveillance in our country, that risk is even greater now. (link)
  • A strong national defense and the protection of our civil liberties are equally important and compatible. We can strike the necessary balance between freedom and security by reforming our surveillance practices and directing the resources we have toward proven methods of eliminating threats to the safety and security of the American people.

  • We must stand up against the big Wall Street banks who gamble with our money and our future. Stand up against overreaching intelligence agencies and big tech companies who take away our civil liberties, privacy, and freedoms in the name of national security and corporate greed. (link)
