listens to or watches me. I am not doing anything wrong, unpatriotic, or anything considered treasonous, but there are those among us who are. I do not want another 9/11, Boston, Oklahoma, or any other future act of terrorism. If you are doing something that the government disapproves of, even if it is tax evasion, you should be caught. They can listen to my phone calls, read my emails, and check me out on Facebook. There is nothing there that they would want to see.
And speaking of Facebook – gosh people, some of you tell all your friends every little thing that you do - short of when you go to the bathroom. Why do you care if the Government wants to know what you do?
In addition, every time you use your computer or phone for commerce,
banking, websites, or texting, etc., you leave a mark that is tracked, recorded,
and used in one way or another by a third party that is not the government.
So those of us who have nothing to hide need to get over ourselves. Monitoring us has been going on for quite a while – probably since 9/11 or maybe even earlier. Technology has made it more intricate and revealing, but we have always been “watched.” That is why some fanatics live in the woods "under the grid."
This issue, I believe, is being raised for political reasons. We will be having elections in Congress soon, and then there is the Presidential election in a few years. Do not let the politicians’ quest for their personal gains guide you into this
paranoia. That is, of course, if you have nothing to hide.
