Surveillance is one of the techniques Left Progressives use to intimidate and ultimately control American citizens.. The ObamaNSA spies on citizens, reads their e-mails, and seizes shipments of computers and i-Phones to plant bugs in these objects. The first true Progressive president, Woodrow Wilson, was a "soft" tyrant, employing various surveillance methods against anyone disagreeing with his domestic and international policies, such as US entry into WWI. When we speak of "Orwellian" societies, we are generally talking about countries run by the Left and socialists--Stalin, Mao, etc. See "Lives of Others" for an insight into Progressive-Socialism at work. Angela Merkel told Obama that NSA actions reminded her of those done by East German spy agency, the Stasi.

Left progressives? Hate to tell you this bucky, but a bunch of this stuff has had bipartisan support with more left-leaning people like myself speaking out against it then people on the right speaking out against it.
Both sides love this surveillance nation bullplop until it is turned against them.

These left-wing progressives are closeted right-wingers.

You do know that George Bush was the one who passed the law enabling warrantless wiretapping, right?

Nice direction there from Snowden, it does not take That many people to stand up for what is right to make this world a wonderful place.

A load more would die in petty wars than is needed to stop those same wars they may end up fighting & dieing in anyways.

the currently seems to be an open flapping window and a degree of missing common sense in the world at the moment.

Classic example of someone overdosing on Rush Limbaugh, and, as a result, they lost the ability to think for themselves, objectively analyze data, and come to their own conclusion.

as a person who refuses to be blindly loyal to their country, i kinda like this guy
It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.
Thomas Paine

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”
President Theodore Roosevelt

Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.
John Adams

If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
Samuel Adams

Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation … it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

James Garfield, the twentieth president of the United States, 1877
The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.
Patrick Henry, American colonial revolutionary

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.
Patrick Henry
