Big Brother Comes Calling

In the form of warrantless access to your online electronic information by government officials:

In a dumbfounding display of politics at work, a U.S. Senate bill that, at one point, would have protected e-mail privacy has gone the opposite way, and would allow government surveillance of online services without a warrant if passed into law.

Previously, the bill protected users’ privacy by requiring a warrant that established probable cause. CNET reports that U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont who heads the Senate Judiciary committee, has rewritten the bill so that, in some cases, government agencies would need only a subpoena to access electronic communications, such as email, Facebook, and Google Docs.

This is obscene. The democrats are busily erecting a police state.

    And they keep getting elected to do so.

    Mind you some polling stations “gave” 99% of the vote to Saint Obama.

    Was it Stalin who said something like, “It is not how people vote that matters; what matters is who counts the votes”?
