    I can not even believe this is an argument.

    Scare scare Monger Monger is obviously working if we have people that will just throw away there constitutional rights which our forfathers fought so hard to earn for us. Anyone who says I have nothing to hide as an excuse for what is happening with data collection and warentless wiretaps should be ashamed. Your just afraid, and the fear has tainted your basic common sence.

    If your so willing to give up your rights perhaps you should pack up your stuff and move to China where big brother is always watching. Perhaps then you would gain some insight in why these rights to privacy were put in the constitution in the first place

  3. maybe in order to reach the “average joe” guy maybe just as target marketing does you may have to tweak the words a bit and hit home where they will and may have felt it.

    all this privacy boils down to following the constitution. if we would have followed the constitution we could have avoided many things that the “average joe” can feel right now and thats his pocket… are you with me? may i explain… its simple, our forefathers fought damn hard to give each of us the liberties we have. Oh yes… and even to the freedom to not even do a damn thing about our freedom or care about how it will affect our friends or families. why do these clowns have the right to not care, vote, study history, understand our constitution, or even educate ones self? because our forefathers believed that every person should have their privacy to be stupid if they so choose.

    … Now, how or where does this affect the “average joe” pockets? every privacy infringing act the Government does affects the “average Joe” not just in their phone call, email, financial, medical, organization joining, and group affiliation… It hits their pockets in TAXES every time the Government Grows another program out of its ass to support these constitution infringing acts it calls domestic spying program, patriot act… etc. etc. it is not the wicked, but the weak that allow this Government encroachment to happen. Its the people that live in denial, its the people that say “if it dont affect me i dont care” wake up people do you think you would be living in this country with the right of apathy (or stupidity) today if our founding fathers said the same damn thing? Our constitution does not give the Government the right to to infringe on our privacy, its in our constitution that those people died to give us our rights. So saying that they can come kick in your door with writs of assistance because you do not have anything to hide is like spitting on the very reason our country fought for a r3volution.

    So I say to you “average joe” the next time you pay $5 at the ga$ pump or wonder why your beer is taxed so much you can blame BIG Government for raising taxes to support these expensive spy and data mining programs. I believe in America not Government. “he who gives up even a little liberty for security, is stupid” -Rich

  4. I didn’t bother reading all the comments but I’m sure somebody would have said this already. The issue for me is not about hiding anything, but more of keeping my business mine alone.

    I agree with GregW

    and irrroncare!

    I’m happy I don’t live in countries that are still fighting for freedom –those countries are probably living better because they don’t worry about primitive topics concerned with the Self constantly…
