This very interesting video drives home the fact why metadata collection is dangerous to citizens, and to the world in general. The fourth amendment in our constitution was brought forth to address this very issue. The British would issue general warrants, or writs of assistance, in order to search for smuggled goods. These general warrants, in the same fashion NSA collects data, allowed British to enlist cooperation from local sheriffs and other “agents of the state” (similar to google, verizon, etc.. these days) and would search house to house without cause or warrant. You can see the similarities. In this video Malte Spitz shows you what the data looks like and what it means at it’s core. He also points out the German courts found the practice unconstitutional. Wouldn’t it be amazing if our constitution did not protect us while the German constitution protected them?Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )

Up until a few years ago, I was happy filling my life with personal issues of family, work, home. Then, I began to notice our once great country is run by a government which has no respect for the Constitution and no respect for us, it's citizens. I realize now it is up to folks like me to change this. I am only one person, but through this blog it is my hope to point out to ordinary Americans how our rights, our liberty, is being threatened. My belief is by shining a bright light, we as a people can begin to peacefully remove the power hungry, self serving autocrats running our government. This is not about one party or another. This is about the very foundation our country was built on. Our foundation is crumbling. Please help me shore it up! Do not be afraid to Speak Out Loudly! Of the people, by the people, for the people. That is how we will get our country back!
