Can I get a HELL YEAH!
Checks and balances, baby! That’s why the power is split in three equal parts in our government.
I can’t express how much this all makes me nervous. I was under the impression that the CIA and the FBI have “watchlists”. They know who the badguys are, they’re keeping tabs on them. So why is this “Surveillance Program” so urgent and vital to the War on Terror?
Now to all the sheep in this country that reason all their rights away with “Go ahead, I’ve got nothing to hide! Nyuk! Nyuk!”. Chew on this:
Gonzales then panicked, sputtered more pre-fabricated talking points, rhetoric about how the sky is falling and freaked out as this curveball wasn’t covered in his cue cards from the White House…
So I ask our Federal Government the same question… why not run it past the Federal Court and check it for legalities?
You have nothing to hide, right?
