If you feel the National Security Agency is overstepping its authority and violating your constitutional rights with their spying activities there are certainly reasons why you should be concerned and the facts to prove it.

Here are those facts why we should get passed the USA FREEDOM Act which would end the bulk collection of Americans' phone records, and institute other key reforms and what we can do.

FACT: A federal judge called the NSA's mass surveillance program "Orwellian" and ruled the activities were likely unconstitutional

FACT: President Obama's own hand-picked review board criticized the NSA's spying program and found no evidence it stopped a single terrorist act

FACT: The NSA is even sending spies into online video game worlds like Second Life and World of Warcraft

FACT: The NSA can exploit mobile apps -- even games like Angry Birds -- to extract key personal information about users.

FACT: The NSA collects on the order of 5 BILLION phone records each day.

FACT: Members of Senate Intelligence committee says there’s NO EVIDENCE bulk data collection has made Americans safer.
