Their real enemy is freedom

Their goal is to track, trace, and register our every move - and set the stage for the further regulation and CONTROL of OUR lives.

The Danger

"I'm not doing anything wrong, so I don't have anything to worry about."

Oh, yes you do.

How any American could say that with a straight face in recent weeks after learning about the IRS' targeting of Tea Party organizations and the wiretapping of reporters is beyond me.

The truth is, there is much to fear.

Men aren't saints.

Neither are government politicians and bureaucrats - which is why the Founders crafted the Fourth Amendment.

If people would not trust their family and friends with the radical powers the Obama administration and the statists in BOTH parties now claim for themselves, how does any American think it's ok to trust the jokers we see in Washington, D.C. today?

Metadata in itself is enough to provide the federal government with a host of information about us, including:

*** Religious beliefs.

Under the NSA's spying program, they'll know if you go to church every Sunday, if you send your children to Vacation Bible School - all of your personal religious beliefs.

How long before they use this information to tell us what God we are allowed to worship? What church we are allowed to attend? What we are allowed to teach our children?

*** Political beliefs.

Should President Obama wish to wholesale target American citizens with pro-limited government political beliefs, what better way than to compile a list of those who frequent certain political websites, attend political rallies and events, or even sign a petition? Buy "too many" pro-liberty books, and you may become a target for surveillance;

*** Gun ownership.

Does President Obama really need a national gun registry if he can register all our Internet activity, phone calls, purchases, and travel? This radical NSA power grab is designed to give the federal government virtually any power they want;

*** Personal relationships.

If they see we've called a hospital or doctor, visited a funeral home, or have frequently called close family and friends, they'll certainly know we're experiencing a heart-wrenching crisis.

How long until a special visit to a government psychiatrist under ObamaCare is mandated? How long until special drugs are required so we don't "crack"?

Of course, all of this is just touching the surface.

One news report claims that metadata relationships were how the FBI discovered the relationship between former CIA Director David Petraeus and his mistress, Paula Broadwell.

Petraeus remained silent about the Benghazi scandal and didn't resign until after the 2012 elections.

Could he have been a target of blackmail?

Could other public officials find themselves targets of similar government-initiated smears or blackmail campaigns?

Could more Americans, even those outside of government, find themselves pressured for fear of having embarrassing incidents, long in their past, exposed?

And should the statists' National ID scheme pass - part of the so-called "Immigration Reform" Bill - all of this data could suddenly become linked to a massive national database federal bureaucrats could access with the click of a mouse.

What if a power-hungry President simply wants to seize NSA metadata records to more effectively target voters for a reelection campaign?

Could we be looking at a permanent President?

Of course, that would be unconstitutional under the 22nd amendment.

Just like this eavesdropping program is unconstitutional under the 4th.

Past Government Abuse

Sound far-fetched?

It's not.

The federal government has already been caught red-handed abusing this kind of power.

In fact, the FBI created a massive dossier on one million American citizens from 1960-1974.

President Nixon attempted to use the CIA to cover up the Watergate break in.

In 2008, news broke that the NSA routinely eavesdropped on troops' personal phone calls - and "pillow talk," "phone sex," and other conversations with "entertainment value" were shared for laughs between government operators according to an NBC news report.

One study shows that every President from FDR to Nixon allowed and encouraged government agencies to handle purely political intelligence.

Add Obama to the list.

One CBS News reporter who dared to report on the Fast and Furious scandal and Benghazi in the days leading up to the 2012 elections had her computer repeatedly hacked by an "unauthorized" (likely government) source.

According to Russ Tice, former intelligence analyst during the Bush Administration, the abuse is far more widespread.

In a recent interview, he told how government snoops "went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the-and [sic] judicial committees."

But that's not all.

Tice stated they went after private citizens - "heaps of lawyers and law firms."

Tice claims he had the wiretap information in his hands of a Supreme Court judge, two FISA court judges, and State Department officials.

Does anyone seriously believe these people were potential "terrorist threats?"

Of course not.

Government officials just saying "trust us" doesn't cut it.

NSA Director James Clapper told Congress "No, sir" when asked if his agency collected any data on American citizens.

He "misled" or "obscured the truth" with his statement, as President Obama's government officials are doing right now.

Regular American citizens would call it a blatant LIE.

The TRUTH is this NSA spying authority is more power than a good government should want - and more power than a bad government should have.

Today, our federal government has the tools the East German "Stasi" - the secret police of decades past - would have salivated over.

Back then, our federal government decried those tactics as Orwellian.

Now, it's adopting them at an alarming rate.

The calendar might say 2013. But it is truly 1984.

The Solution

Stripping away power from statist politicians so intent on amassing it won't be easy.

But C4L has done it before.

Just a few years ago, the Federal Reserve was hardly a blip on Americans' radar screen.

And a few years ago Homeland Security was a concept. Then it became an Office, tasked with coordinating the activities of many agencies. Now the Office of Homeland Security is a domestic police force that provides funding for other regional and local law enforcement agencies, effectively creating a multi-tiered force. Purchasing more small arms ammunition in the last year than most countries. A force that effectively shut down whole sections of a major American city after the Boston Marathon bombing, forcing millions into their homes. Necessary? Maybe. The next time it may not be so black and white. They now know how to make it happen...and American citizens do as they are told. Lambs to the slaughter.

Excellent post! I give you one of my rarely awarded kudos. It's an inspiration to read a thoughtfully composed, well-researched piece like this on the AMD blog.

I am afraid there's very little that can be done about the problem, however. The tech that makes this kind of snooping possible is a bit like the nuclear reality. Once you let the genie out of the bottle, he's never going back in.

I think we have to remember with fondness the time we enjoyed an element of privacy in our lives. It's a comfortable feeling future generations will never know and, therefore, won't miss. Rather than mourn it's passing, however, I think we're well-advised to re-invent our lives around the reality that there will never be such privacy as we once enjoyed again.

Again my Lady, you've done well and far exceeded the mundane postings that precipitated the demise of the site. What is truly ironic is the bleating of the lambs, the indignation of the truly naive. To be a realist there has always been similar access by prior administrations. The difference is the motive and gain to use the technology and for what purpose? Security or politics? How many agencies of government has this administration subverted and to what end? To what cost even for the lambs who await a present and future for which they have little knowledge?
