Just keep being random and post a lot of dick picks all over the place :P I know many people that randomly send dick picks to people just in case the government ever decides to spy on them haha

why the need to trace and spy?

US Gov: we can hack you and spy coz its a matter of national security. you cant hack and spy on us because its a matter of national security.

Give them some benefit. There are people who use Tor for more sinister means, such as looking for a hitman, trafficking people and plotting terrorist activities.

Unfortunately the US government is a destructive child. Anything you give it gets misused. No matter what they tell you it's for, they will go much further. They were supposed to only spy on American citizens with proper cause. Instead they spied on all of us and found next to nothing. They said they need metadata to help pinpoint the terrorists. They also say they know where the training camps are. Why not stick to the people who go to those camps.

Don't get use to that from me. I wanted to at least have one patriotic comment online. lol

True, but US is responsible for more deaths than any terrorist could ever hope to be...

So we should strive to reform our (we US citizens) overmilitarized strategies of dealing with the problems of the world.

Bullets kill people, but never their ideals, if you have nothing to combat those, you migt as well be firing blanks. And spying on our own, to thwart what, something like the plane hijackings? Those things shouldn't even be possible in this day and age with the technology avaiable! Flip a switch and any aircraft should come into immediate autonomous control.
