While many Americans may not care about the invasions into our private lives that we face each and everyday, the lack of security and the constant survaliance we are under is a cause for concern. While most of these privacy invasions are used to tailor ads, it could be dangerous if the wrong person gets this information.
Everyone is entitled to privacy, it is very scary when you know all your information is out there with somebody else and can be used against you anytime. Nobody should be trailing us. The caucus formed by the bipartisan group lawmakers to push for privacy is a good idea. The government should do more.
Privacy is a hot and controversial topic in today's society, as we are using digital devices nearly 24/7. All of our information is online. Who we text, call, message; our bank accounts, social security information; all these items are on online databases. It cannot and should not be breached by the American Government.
The Patriot Act following the events of 9/11 does little to ensure the privacy protections of Americans. The bi-partisan group may well see opposition from both major parties under the guise of "national security" and will come under attack by those in power seeking to use that private information for gain.
