Since September 11th, 2001, the United States government has been monitoring its citizens' phone calls, license plates, internet search histories, purchases, and movements in unprecedented and, in some cases, invasive ways.  The government claims that this secret surveillance is necessary and keeps us safe.  But and the American Civil Liberties Union have done some investigating and they say that if we really want to be safe, we need more privacy.
