Exact Plan Text or Advocacy Statement: The United States federal government should substantially curtail its domestic surveillance by eliminating the National Security Agency’s project Bullrun.
Advantages/Harms (with explanation):
- Technology Sector: Bullrun destroys technology sector, hurting vital technology business, ultimately leading to nuclear war. Eliminating project Bullrun allows business innovation.
- Cyber Attacks: Lack of cyber-security leads to cyber terrorism, causing nuclear response and the end of the world. Removal of Bullrun decreases risk of cyber-hacking, and identifies emerging threats.
- Internet Freedom: NSA surveillance programs like Bullrun obstructs freedom of speech, ultimately hurting U.S. relations with China and Russia, and killing democracy movements. Eliminating Bullrun allows for democracy, enabling negotiations.
Solvency: Passage of the Secure Data Act to close back doors.
