"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Interesting how once their ox is gored they think spying is bad, but spying on all of us remains good.

But having the IRS targeting private citizens for expressing opposing views to the government or Regime is not an act of treason? NSA spying on US citizens isn't an act of treason? Obama's giving aid and comfort to Terrorist organizations isn't an act of treason?

Okay.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

Now THIS is what I'm talkin' bout Willis...... :patriot:

Make it a campaign issue for every Republican running.  We're going to arrest every damned one of them and perp walk them out for your evening news.

Even NBC would have to cover it.  LOL!

Frankly I don't care that they care that they are being spied on when they advocate for spying on us citizens.

Guess it's "whose ox is being gored..."  But like Emmanuel says, never let a good crisis good to waste.

They're handing us an issue all Americans can get behind.

It's a long held belief that the technology at the government's disposal is decades ahead of what the public gets to play with.

I believe that's still true today even though the consumer end has risen dramatically the past decade.

It makes perfect sense if the government can electronically make a digital copy of every form of communication using the internet or cell phones...that they would do it. 

Is it right?  Needs limits set.  All data 'seasoned' more than a year gets deleted. 

Like Will Smith's wife said in Enemy of the State...."We need watchers...but who's gonna watch the Watcher's?"

As long as Mike Rogers and Peter King are continuing to say it's fine to spy on us it is a loser for both parties.
