This is horrifying

NSA tracks calls

Okay, so they don't record or listen to the calls - yet. At some point, they will, don't kid yourselves. Shortly after, we will have cameras in our houses and cars, and they'll listen to and watch everything we do. All under the false pretense of protecting our borders from terrorism. I'd literally rather die than have the government take away every single ounce of privacy I have.

Please don't give me this crap about "If you're not doing anything wrong, what's the problem?" I don't know about you, but I'm a little tired of being treated like an untrustworthy teenager.

How stupid do you have to be to think that this is a perfectly acceptable government action? They are tracking your private calls. When will the government go too far for some people? When a Secret Service agent is assigned to everyone, to make sure we aren't doing terrorist-y things? When we are all tattooed with a number, and all of our movements tracked? Where does protection end and lunacy begin?

Big brother is watching.

The government doesn't have nearly the resources to watch everyone much less people that aren't suspicious.

For them to put cameras in every house our country would have to turn communist, and have one person monitoring for every ~25 cameras they install. It's a scary thought, but it's just not realistic.

On top of this, with the national debt plummeting ever lower towards bankruptcy the government literally can't afford to do anything near what Big Brother is said to do.

Cousin - you know the government doesn't wait for money to open up to finance things. We sure didn't have $280 billion laying around to go a-fightin' in Iraq, but there we are!

I read about some people who already have chips implanted, so they can be tracked. Like LoJack for humans.

Everyone loves a good conspiracy.
