In the United States we now find ourselves in a situation where the government not only views the citizenry as suspects but treats them as suspects, as well. The National Security Agency is routinely overstepping its legal authority by carrying out surveillance on American citizens. This is what happens when you give the government broad powers and allow government agencies to routinely sidestep the Constitution. Anything you have ever said or done can be tracked, collected and cataloged by their super computers and teams of government agencies.
By sifting through the records of your once-private life, the government will come to its conclusions about who you are, where you fit in and how best to deal with you should the need arise. If this is the new “normal” in the United States, it is not friendly to freedom.
President Barack Obama will be remembered as the president who put the final chains in place to imprison us in an electronic concentration camp from which there is no escape.
