Learn more about NSA Domestic Surveillance
Under a provision of the Patriot Act the NSA is allowed to collect phone metadata — the numbers, time stamps, and duration of a call, but not its actual content. Opponents include civil liberties advocates and Senator Rand Paul who argue that the collection is unconstitutional since it is done without a warrant. Supporters of the collection argue that the collection is necessary to track suspected terrorists. See recent NSA news

Show me one instance of arrest and prosecution; show me where you've caught ONE terrorist using this program and I will be for allowing it to contine. 2 years ago from a Republican in Potwin, KS
No. Bulk collection is unconstitutional. NSA and other agencies should be able to engage in targeted collection of electronic communications only with a specific court order on an individual. 2 years ago from a Republican in Bartlett, TN
Yes, But only if The call leaves the US. 2 years ago from a Republican in Hobart, WA
Yes...but the NSA must act on any suspicious activity when it concerns criminal activity or terrorist activity. They knew about the Boston Bomber but did nothing. 2 years ago from a Republican in Covington, GA

Yes, but non-suspicious communications should be deleted after six or so months. 2 years ago from a Republican in Urban Honolulu, HI
No, I support their having the ability to do so, but they should only proactive this ability on people who are under watch or suspicion. Broad, nationwide data collection should not exist. It is invasive. 2 years ago from a Republican in Humble, TX
