A reminder that there are big-government Progressives in both
parties. McCain and Graham are two other GOP examples.
They crave power and control as much as any Democrat, and are willing to use the rationale of "national security" to achieve their ends, which have little to do with keeping Americans safe.
Our enemy is not "terror" or "terrorism", as is currently pretended, but radical Islam. Building a massive data collection infrastructure that captures nearly all
private communications and stores it exclusively for government use in undefined ways is not going to do a goddamned thing
to defeat the enemy. That
would require identification, intelligence gathering, and infiltration of the enemy
, not innocent Americans. Let's start with the Mosques known to house and train members of radical Islamic groups and known terrorist training camps right here in America
It will, however assist in the domination and control of the American people from our overlords in Washington, DC. If Peter King was serious about national security, he might begin by asking what a major Islamic training camp
is doing in his home state of New York.
