Got to hand it to the ACLU on this one. They made me laugh.
As a Christmas gift I'll take a car laced with listening devices, at worse I could always use a colonoscopy.
Why do people have to be so damn Procrustean? The creepiness of the NSA has nothing per se to do with socialism. Gov't authorities spying on citizens and thereby chilling freedom of speech and association is for sure an AUTHORITARIAN tactic, but authoritarianism comes in many flavors.
NSA is evil and intends to bring socialism into existence any wat possible...and the "its necessary for our own good...safety.... and terrorist control" is bullshit...its to take our freedoms,privacy and lives when deemed expedient to their agenda.
