Sure, they say they aren't really abusing this power they have granted themselves, but time and time again that has proven to be false.
Even though there are attempts at repealing these powers, we all know that the loss of our liberties is something that won't come back easily. History has shown that the only way to regain our liberty is through bloodshed.
Well, we aren't there yet, so in the meantime the only way you can protect your liberties is by avoiding proprietary software that the NSA has connections in, and encrypt all of your Internet activities.
Finding all the possible alternatives to the proprietary junk you are used to can be a daunting task. That is why one guy known as @zcpeng on Twitter made a website to help you find all the tools you need. It's called Prism-Break.org.
From the page:
Opt out of global data surveillance programs like PRISM, XKeyscore and Tempora. Stop governments from spying on you by encrypting your communications and ending your reliance on proprietary services.Don't forget that I have joined the fight against government surveillance as well with my own Linux distribution with tools built in to help you avoid the NSA called Bauer-Puntu Linux!
