The NSA's SURVEILLANCE: uCOnstitutional? Phillip Andrukonis

The actions and surveillance programs of the NSA violate the rights to privacy of American citizens stated in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

The Fourth Amendment states that American citizens have the right to be secure in their persons and property and are protected from unreasonable search and seizures without a proper warrant.

There is much animosity from the American people toward the NSA because they feel their rights are being violated.

Many people view Edward Snowden as a hero because of the classified information he leaked, even though according to the government, he is a criminal.

Many Americans are not willing to give up their privacy for supposed increased national security.

The NSA has the ability to track anyone's phone records without obtaining a warrant, a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment.
The NSA's programs are unconstitutional and need to be restricted, eliminated, or made unclassified.

If nothing is done, the rights of U.S. citizens will continue to be infringed upon, and this could lead to a larger distrust of the American government among U.S. citizens then is already present.
