U.S. Surveillance Is Not Aimed at Terrorists

The debate over the U.S. government’s monitoring of digital communications suggests that Americans are willing to allow it as long as it is genuinely targeted at terrorists. What they fail to realize is that the surveillance systems are best suited for gathering information on law-abiding citizens.

"We have seen the enemy and it is us." Or something like that.

I won't hold my breath on the majority of the sheeple waking up to the fact that our 'gubbint' has declared We The People to be the enemy over the last 10-15 years, but in light of recent events, SOME people will... and add that to the fact that already 10% of the people out there think that a revolution is a necessary, proper and inevitable thing... and I'd say we have our 3% several times over.

Well...they also like to redefine what a terrorist is...and it seems, to them at least, I is one.

Eventually, Americans will realize that we haven't had a representative government since 1860, when big business got Lincoln into office and then declared war on the States. Free market capitalism died at the same time, we just didn't realize it until 1913 when the Bankster cartel took over the Federal monopoly on power and money. We've had a fascist dictatorship since then and your vote has meant exactly squat. The only way to return to a Jeffersonian representative Republic is the way our Founders did it in 1775.

Eventually, when Americans find that every person in the world is entitled to a job in the USA, except for them - all in the name of diversity. When they find themselves a dirt poor minority in the country their fathers founded. When they find out that diversity is not THEIR strength, but the strength of their enemies.

Eventually, but not today. Today many Americans will go to work at their corporate jobs touting the slogan, "Diversity is our strength;" until is isn't.

And it's too late.
