A pair of California state senators, one Democrat and one Republican, have introduced legislation to prevent the state from helping NSA mass surveillance.
“The National Security Agency’s massive level of spying and indiscriminate collecting of phone and electronic data on all Americans, including more than 38 million Californians, is a direct threat to our liberty and freedom,” state Sen. Ted Lieu (D), who co-authored the bill with state Sen. Joel Anderson (R), said in a statement on Monday.
This is nullification and constitutionally questionable. And if there’s ever another terrorist attack, these are the same sorts of people who will be rending garments and crying, “Why?! WHY?! Obama’s fault!”
