We CAN do Something About the NSA.

In 2006, the NSA maxed out the power grid in Baltimore.  Their own memos and press releases have explained that the only way they can expand (to current levels and beyond) is by finding new locations to get essential resources.  In San Antonio, a new data center is opening because of the independent power grid in Texas - and the electricity being provided by a publicly-owned utility.

In Utah, the Bluffdale Data Center will require 1.7 million gallons of water every single day to operate - keep computers cool.  That water is being provided by the State of Utah.  

Texas, Utah - and everywhere - there's nothing requiring the states to actually assist the feds in carrying out these programs.

They can TURN IT OFF!

This is based on the almost-undisputed "anti-commandeering doctrine," which says that the feds can't require the states to help them carry out their laws, acts, regulations or other programs.

The Supreme Court continually affirms this principle.  The major cases include 1842 Prigg, 1997 Printz, 2002 New York and 2012 Sebelius.

What We Need

We've created a radio ad specifically for Utah - focusing on the water required for the new data center there.  We've already paid for and funded the creation of this radio ad - including all licensing fees to make sure we can run it.  

What we need, though, is the funding to get it on air to get the word out.

With your HELP, we can reach people on radio shows and podcasts in alternate media for one month.

  • $4000 (minus Indiegogo fees) will enable us to have a significant ad presence on shows like Free Talk Live, the Scott Horton Show and others.  
  • The best part?  Even if we don't hit our funding goal, we can still start the campaign on a more limited scope.  And, if you help us get far beyond, we'll simply up the ante, and place ads on larger and larger shows and networks.  Everything we get after the fees Indiegogo charges us will go towards running advertisements.  All of it.

What You Get

It's most common for crowdfunding projects like this to entice people with great perks, gifts, products, and the like.

While we've got some great giveaways, that's not our focus here.  We're taking a different approach - recognizing that if you support the idea of resisting NSA spying, you don't need us to be your local online store with a bunch of cool products to buy, the end result is the greatest perk of all - working together to nullify the massively unconstitutional NSA spying program.

The Impact

By spreading the word that something can actually be done beyond calling a Congressional representative who likely can't stop the NSA, people will be encouraged to take action to resist.  

Our hope is that this will act as a force-multiplier, of sorts.  As the pressure on Utah builds to introduce a "4th Amendment Protection Act" (to turn off the water, for example), people in states like Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland, West Virginia and Washington State will be encouraged to do the same.  

And that's just the beginning.  

Other Ways You Can Help

Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean yo can’t help:

  • Please help get the word out and make some noise about this campaign.
  • Make sure to use the Indiegogo share tools - and spread this on social media everywhere

Let's get to work and help restore the 4th Amendment!

The fact is, we do NOT need to sit idly by.

Rosa Parks proved it - saying NO can change the world.
