    I wonder how Patrick Henry would have responded. Actually, no, I don't.

    The devil is always asking to you give little more and little more and little more it will be all right, until you have given up all.

    The correct answer to big government is: NO!

    "Obama's report of how the government spy program on its citizens works could be accurate."

    Yes, and there's some truth to Santa Clause, too, but I don't believe in either one since I grew up.

    Obama's report of how the government spy program on its citizens works could be accurate. But given Oama's penchant & history of being dishonest leaves a doubt, a question regarding this program & whether there are other, more intrusive &
    possibly more shocking to Americans.

    OK! I choose to have the POTUS, Congress, and all government personnel to actually honor their oath to defend the Constitution. Shutting down the secret court would be a good start.

    I am grateful our government has the know how and the will to use a computer to sift through phone calls to find an otherwise almost invisible enemy. The fact that a computer looks at my phone calls and then determines I am not a threat doesn't bother me. It would have bothered me very much had terrorists killed hundreds in a New York subway. If terrorism became frequent in Utah that would bother me.
