19. How long until Government officials use private information...
Edited on Fri Jan-22-10 12:03 PM by chrisa
To attack opponents, or even blackmail? For example, conversations over the phone with a doctor?

But no, "surveillance makes us free! This is America! Home of the free! Sometimes you just have to give up some rights to be safe! You can't yell "fire" in a crowded movie theatre! Don't you know there's a War on Terror going on! When it ends, Al Kader is defeated, and there are no terrorists left in the world, then we'll get those rights back. Just watch!"
