Surveillance

California has deployed surveillance cameras on nearly every stretch of highway and at every intersection. Footage from these cameras is publicly available, which means anyone with Internet access can track our every movement.

Who asked for this? Who decided that the government should be watching everything we do and everywhere we go? Most of all, how is that freedom? We send dangerous criminals to prison and keep them under surveillance - why are we treating law-abiding citizens the same way? My Brothers in Arms didn't die in combat so that Americans would have to live under surveillance in an open-air prison. We fought, bled, and died, so that Americans could live free!

It doesn’t have to be this way. If elected, I would fight to end the dystopian surveillance state.
