When government abuses its authority to "save" us, we lose freedom. We
are a free people because we have limited government interference in our lives.
Those who want government to subjugate us will tell us anything, but the
Constitution protects us against those charlatans. The NSA has no authority to
spy on U.S citizens. NONE!
Who will have supreme power. Electricity Co. Monsanto with food or the oil co.
The struggle for power will continue till the game is over. It's been that
since Monsanto's first patten in the 50's. They now have the top
offices in gov. and in the courts. Property and people has lost value and

- we agree, again, for the 2nd or 3rd time.BTW - Where have you been
for the past 12 years as I've spoken out against this sort of
Constitutional abuses?Wasn't it guys like you that called me a
"traitor" and labeled me as being "un-patriotic", and
"un-American" for not cow-towing, supporting, and dumbly going along
with GW Bush when he was initiating all this?Welcome.And
thanks for finally coming around to your senses.
L Liberal,Please don't take this personally, but the debate is
not about you. The ideas presented are not about you. As Americans, we are
responsible to remind the government that we have put strict limits on their
activities. As Americans, we also have a responsibility to point out to other
Americans that we are governed by law and that the Constitution is that law. We
have a duty to see that those duties that have been assigned to each level of
government are faithfully carried out and that no other "duty" is
performed on any level of government.When we look around to see who
agrees with us, we lose focus. We're not in a popularity contest. The
Deseret News has given us a forum where each person can present his ideas.This thread is about the NSA abusing its authority to collect
information. Each of us should read the 4th Amendment and then use that
amendment as the foundation for our comments.
@Mike RichardsSouth Jordan, UtahAgreed.I'm
just pointing out that I'm 100% consistent, I have shown integrity ALWAYS,
I am honest I do not change what is right vs. what is wrong - what is
Constitutional vs. what is not Constitutional based strictly on who is the
President, and what political party that belong to.Obama was wrong
for extending it. THERE - I said it (again, for the ump-tenth time).Now, show some honesty and integrity yourself, and admit that Bush was even
more wrong for passing it and starting it in the 1st place, and I'll forget about all those "traitor", Un-American", and
"Un-Patriotic" comments I was forced to endure for 8 years.
