Can you check if this essay has some corrections that need do be fixed:


Imagine you're talking on your telephone or even sending an email to your friend and the government is listening to your conversation or what you’ve written to your friends. Does that frighten you? Wiretapping is a worldwide issue that affects most about every person in the world. The issue I am studying about is Privacy and Security. Privacy is the right to be free from secret’s being revealed and one’s personal information also to be revealed. Security is protection against any type of fraud. I am against this because the people have all the right to have “freedom of speech” and a right to have privacy. Benjamin Franklin had once said “Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have nor do they deserve either one”.
The Bill of Rights supports my position because the right of privacy is understood in the First, Third, Fourth, Ninth, and the Fourteenth Amendments. The Issue of Wiretapping had started in 1978, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was passed by Congress, the FISA had created a court in order to oversee observations in the US, and soon the Congress edited the wiretapping law in 1986. They began to allow wiretapping. In 2001, after 9/11, Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force this was taken as a law that authorizes wiretapping. When Congress allowed wiretapping to occur, it meant that government could listen in on phones their target may use or any other type of devices that the target have used in order to develop an attack. The U.S.A. Patriot Act is also known as the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Interpret and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001. This Act was passed was passed by the U.S. Congress on October 26, 2001, at the request of President George Bush in response to the terrorist acts of September 11. The Patriot Act was declared in order top prevent terrorist attacks in the United States and the other countries around the world. This Act had deeply had strengthened many security purposes, for example the ability to search telephone, emails and other type of records. Studies have shown that in 2007 about 2,119 wiretaps were installed and also wiretapping communications of nearly two hundred thousand people. Wiretapping is invading other’s privacy, but the government exclaims that it is for the people’s security. Those “toys” are placed in order to prevent any type of attacks and is there to simplify any type of investigations. I think that the government should not have to wiretap because that truly destroys the true meaning of being an American, which in conclusion gives the others victory of ruling over the Americans. The U.S. Citizens give up way too many personal freedoms and many rights in order to gain any level of “safety” the law may offer. I am against wiretapping because it is an invasion of people’s privacy. There are still hundreds of people whose private conversations are recorded and analyzed by the government. People, who especially are the good law-abiding U.S. citizens, deserve to be able to make a phone call to a friend or relative without having to worry about it being reviewed by a government official later. If anyone refuses to offer their allegiance to the country or to a leader can be labeled as a suspected person and that the government might be spying on the suspect. So will these be people considered as terrorists that are planning some type of attack. So, as you can see how easily a person can be considered as a suspect and the government invading in the suspect’s privacy. Instead, I would recommend the government should try to avoid the use of wiretapping unless it is absolutely necessary and to wiretap those who might have been linked to some type of danger.

  • Some suggestions -

    Imagine you're talking on your telephone or even sending an email to your friend and the government is listening to your conversation or READING what you've written to your friends. Does that frighten you? Wiretapping is a worldwide issue that affects NEARLY every person in the world. The issue I am studying about is Privacy and Security. Privacy is the right to be free FROM DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL SECRETS. Security is protection against *** fraud.
    I SUPPORT PRIVACY because *** people have ** a right to ** freedom of speech and a right to *** privacy. Benjamin Franklin *** once said "Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have nor do they deserve either one".
    The Bill of Rights supports my position because the right of privacy is understood in the First, Third, Fourth, Ninth, and *** Fourteenth Amendments. The Issue of Wiretapping FIRST CAME UP in 1978. AT THAT TIME the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was passed by Congress, the FISA *** created a court *** to oversee WIRETAPPING in the US, and *** Congress edited the wiretapping law in 1986. THE NEW LAW ALLOWED wiretapping. In 2001, after 9/11, Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force. This Is *** a law that authorizes wiretapping. When Congress allowed wiretapping to occur, it meant that government could listen in on phones their target may use or any other type of device* that the target MIGHT USE in order to develop an attack.
    The U.S.A. Patriot Act is also known as the "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Interpret and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001". This Act was passed was passed by the U.S. Congress on October 26, 2001, at the request of President George Bush in response to the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001. The Patriot Act was ENACTED in order to* prevent terrorist attacks in the United States and IN other countries around the world. This Act *** deeply *** strengthened *** security. For example *** searchES OF telephone, emails and other type of records WERE LEGALIZED.
    Studies have shown that in 2007 about 2,119 wiretaps were installed and *** wiretapping communications of nearly two hundred thousand people WERE MONITORED.
    Wiretapping is invading *** privacy, but the government **claims that it is for the *** security OF THE PEOPLE. Those "toys" are placed in order to prevent any type of attacks and ARE there to simplify **** investigations. I think that the government should not *** wiretap because WIRETAPPING *** destroys the true meaning of being an American.
    IN conclusion THIS gives the ENEMY THE victory of ruling over *** Americans. *** U.S. Citizens give up way too many personal freedoms and many rights in order to gain any level of "safety" the law may offer. I am against wiretapping because it is an invasion of *** privacy. There are still hundreds of people whose private conversations are recorded and analyzed by the government. People, ** especially *** the good law-abiding U.S. citizens, deserve to be able to make a phone call to a friend or relative without having to worry about it being reviewed by a government official ***. ***Anyone WHO refuses to offer their allegiance to the country or to a leader can be labeled as a suspected person and THE government IS EMPOWERED TO SPY on the suspect.
    So will these "SUSPECTS" BE considered *** terrorists WHO are planning some type of attack ? *** You can see how easily a person can be LABELED *** a suspect and the government CAN THEN INVADE the suspect's privacy.
    Instead, I would recommend the government should try to avoid the use of wiretapping UNLESS AUTHORIZED BY A JUDGE IF THERE IS EVIDENCE OF GREAT DANGER.
