Again...wire tapping has been going on for years...they listened in for years for key words, like the presiding President's name at the time, bombs, etc. and to my knowledge it has been going on since the 40's.
Believe me, we had the technology then, and it's been happening now and basically I'm for it. What I don't understand is politicians...we're such a divided country, and right where they want us to be...if there were more parties, one wouldn't feel obligated to back up their party and I don't care what anyone says, both sides are corrupt.
It never ceases to amaze me that people are afraid to change parties, and lobby for more parties...instead of defending corruption...if that there were more parties, it would surely afford more honest politicians not afraid to work for the people, instead of themselves...I'd vote for the first politician that stands up and announces, he's going to take a cut in his pay/bonus, and get rid of some of his aides, and try to do more of the work himself.
But, people honestly feel, b/c their families were democrates/replublicans for years, it would be a dishonor to them to change. So, instead, we all fight and back up our arguments with articles from others who are simply people with an opinion, which is good, yet not so good. The extreme lefts and rights really scare me...seriously...look at what is happening over some stupid cartoon...it's annal, stupidity, self imposition...this world will be destroyed by religion...
Anyway, sorry for getting off the subject here...I'm really really worried about the extent that people will go.
I don't like what Bush has done to this country...he's tried and not done such a good job, although, he's also done some good things, in my opinion, but on this issue...to me, this is simply a witch hunt!!!!
Have they asked the American's how we feel about this? I'm telling you all straight from the heart...I have nothing to hide, and they can wire tap me all they want, or anyone else for that matter, if it's going to help deter another 9-11.
I cannot believe this country...we have such marvelous opportunities, we are still the best country in the world to live in, and yet, we allow our government to get away with something like this...
a waist of time and our money, just b/c they hate Bush. When in fact, they know, Big brother has been listening in for years and years.
Frankly, I'm glad they do, especially after we've found all those tunnels from Mexico to the US...I swear to you, another terrorist attack has been forwarned. We are so lax with our laws and with allowing anyone into this country...it's bound to happen soon. When it does, it's going to seriously effect the stock market again...and that's exactly where they want to hurt us.
So, if a little wire tapping is going to save some lives, then I'm all for it!
