I'm happy that my friends on the left side of the aisle see the problem with the government collecting the phone records of all Americans, as revealed by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. I see the problem too. The government has no right to invade the privacy of innocent American citizens without cause, as is stated in the Fourth Amendment.
Using the same privacy reasoning, I have to ask my left aisle friends why they supported ObamaCare, which handed over all our medical records to the government.To read more or comment...
Some people are calling him a hero and others are calling him a traitor, but if you haven't read Glen Greenwald's interview with the NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, you should. Here are some selected excerpts:

That's what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) thinks about revelations that the government is spying on nearly all Americans.

What a relief, eh ? I'm having a problem seeing how the knowledge that the government has been spying on us for years is supposed to be calming. It's having just the opposite effect on me.To read more or comment...
