Congress, not the president, should decide eavesdropping

I believe the security of our nation is paramount. But I don't understand the argument going on about the legality of the President's unilateral eavesdropping program. We Americans live under the rule of Law. Before my President eavesdrops on me, I want my representatives in Congress to have an open debate about whether it's necessary or not. I want the Supreme Court to rule that it doesn't violate my personal freedoms as set forth in the Constitution, and then I want the President to execute that law under judicial review. That's the American way. I DON'T WANT ANY PRESIDENT TO DECIDE ON HIS OWN THAT I NEED TO BE WATCHED. I believe we can come up with a good balance of security interests and personal freedoms. ALL WE NEED IS A RETURN TO OUR AMERICAN VALUES AND NEW LEADERSHIP.
