Has NSA Surveillance Gone too Far?

Fernando Blanco of Electric Avenue Inc. said - "Among the many topics that bring major controversy today, NSA Surveillance is rising up to the top of the list. The topic itself draws skepticism, anger, and well as approval. It seems as if the United States is very divided on this issue. In our technological age, social sites have become a major way in which people across the globe communicate. " (Culture, NSA)

Americans are so disconnected from their responsibilities as citizens that they get what they deserve. Prism or programs like it have been around for decades. Suddenly it's cool to hate it. Turn off the TV, put the game down, stop shopping, let your hair do wait and watch C-Span sometimes. Watch something not made to entertain but instead made to inform. Watch more than one news station and learn to read between the lines. Read FOREIGN sources, they are often more honest and the truth is usually somewhere in between. And more than anything, develop your memory. People quickly forgetting is the greatest weapon manipulators have. And remain vigilant. All of the things people hated in SOPA were quietly passed months later.

Gone too far? I think you will find this is just the beginning. More info to come out from what I have read.

It is conspiracy fact now and soon more will become fact.

Do you know what the FEMA camps are for? wire fences facing INWARDS.

Do you know what the murals at Denver Airport mean?

Do you know what the georgia guidestones are for?

Have you not heard of riots, violent protest? that will happen when things go to the braking point

Lmao, people choose to get serious when its far to late.
I love when people blame our president, like the presidents before werent involved either. they have been spying on us since the 70s. honestly this is all too convenient for me, something deeper and fishier is going on.

And here comes the news to distract you:

USA to ARM SYRIAN REBELS... so basically here comes WW3.

Who exactly are these people... these individuals who believe that surveillance of private citizens is necessary? Ben Franklin famously said "Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither." I refuse to give up my liberties in exchange for a false sense of security. The world is a dangerous place, terrible things are going to happen.

Gone to far? They did the same crap in 2006....

Lets be realistic here. The majority of us aren't interesting enough to be spied on. Also people need to stop treating the government as supernatural all powerful entity. It's made up of people. Not saying skepticism is bad, but it's nothing without critical thought. If things truly get out of hand, people from the inside and out will riot.
