What many are forgetting about the National Security Agency scandal is that texts, emails, telephone conversations and the like, with the exception of the social media, all have the expectations of privacy when used. The U.S. Constitution is very clear and specific as to when warrants are required.

When the Patriot Act is used in the manner described, a warrant is required. There is no probable cause for any searches being done. In other words, no suspicion of any crimes committed. When we seek to have security like this, then freedoms hard won by our forefathers are put at risk, but to what purpose? Have us live in a police state?

For me, no, freedom is far more precious than life itself, and those who first railed at this intrusion and now are embracing it, defending it, are leading us to the totalitarian state of the communists and socialists of the Iron Curtain days. Is that what you want?

Only by a resounding flurry of communications to our representatives, by our votes if need be, can we stop the march to this bitter end of our great country. Get busy, time is shorter than you think.
