Say No to Drones

Senator Rob Hogg doesn’t have the time to consider SF 276 – He would rather surrender himself to the mercy of the drones…

It’s only a one page bill, but apparently having Senator Hogg sit down to read it and mull it over is too much to ask.

Please contact Senator Hogg, ask him to give SF276 the consideration it deserves and schedule a hearing ASAP.

You see, Hogg is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Without Senator Hogg scheduling a committee hearing on SF 276, our common sense drone regulations are dead in the water.

With political leaders like Sen. Hogg being too lazy to consider a one page bill, it’s no wonder our country is in such bad shape.

That type of “leadership” is completely unacceptable.

Please contact Senator Hogg, ask him to give SF276 the consideration it deserves and schedule a hearing ASAP.

Living in a police state enforced by flying robots is not an option.

So here at Liberty Iowa, we are going to do everything in our power to persuade Senator Hogg on the dangers that drones pose to our liberty, privacy, and peace of mind.

Tackling the special interests and established politicians is not easy.

In fact, it is very expensive in time and money.

If you share my disdain for the robotic police state being erected around us, please donate generously to our cause.

Every dollar donated is carefully spent advancing the cause — by fighting back at the aloof tyrants who are too busy to read a one page bill and fulfill their duties as a legislator.

Even $25 – a half tank of gas- goes a long way in unleashing the political power of our all-volunteer army.

Thank you for your attention to these very important matters, and for your dedication and commitment to the cause of Liberty.

Faithfully Yours In Liberty,

Jeff Shipley
Chairman
Liberty Iowa Legislative Committee

P.S. Failure to consider a one-page bill is unacceptable! Please contact Senator Hogg, ask him to give SF276 the consideration it deserves and schedule a hearing ASAP.

    Cleverly invented to counter growing terrorism, drones usage offers no controls nor checks and balances to prevent them from being used for politically nefarious purposes.

    Imagine what Richard Nixon would have done if he’d had such peremptory or discretionary presidential authority? Any of his antagonists, like Daniel Ellsberg, would have monitored by domestic drones… and then Ellsberg would have been picked up and held for providing “material support” to the enemy in a time of war.

    There are currently no discernible safeguards to prevent a paranoid and power hungry President (think Johnson, Nixon, or Obama), or his/her national security team, from using drone technology as a threat and/or punishment to political enemies, particularly given the exigencies of war or a domestic emergency like 9/11.

    For national security purposes, Americans are already subject to warrantless wiretaps of calls and emails, the warrantless GPS “tagging” of their vehicles, the domestic use of Predators or other spy-in-the-sky drones, and the Department of Homeland Security’s monitoring of all our behavior through “data fusion centers.”

    Given this toxic mashup of losses of privacy, if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, then domestic drones are a superhighway to an Orwellian panoptic gulag.

    America’s promise has always been the power of the many to rule, instead of the one. Ungoverned drone usage, particularly domestically, gives power to the one.

    Domestic drone usage is ill-conceived, elitist, and end-runs our inherent Constitutional protections.
