Yet ordinary Americans, for the most part, seem not to care: 'Surveillance so intrusive it is putting certain subjects out of bounds would seem like cause for alarm in a country that prides itself as the world's most free.
America, land of the free, home of the brave.. Inviting every Tom, Dick and Harry from all corners of the globe to come join America's way of life wasn't such a good thing afterall. It has politicians back peddling like crazy to shore up the borders now. Now that we have clearly let some of those who would love to destroy America move on in.. Why is everyone so surprised by the survellance taking place now being that we are really threatened by these unknown foreigners emigrating and raising their children to hate America?
Uh, why are you so worried about foreigners? Because they aren't the ones passing "laws" giving themselves the right to arrest you without charges, imprison you indefinitely without due process, torture you, violate your right to be free from unlawful search and seizure, prevent you from exercising your rights to free speech and petitioning the government for redress of grievances, etc. etc. etc.
Really, dude, if you're worried about people who want to "destroy America," you should be paying more attention to DC and Wall Street than Ellis Island.
