Does the United States Still Exist?

The so-called Freedom Act would actually legitimize all spying all the time on all of us in ways that the Patriot Act fails to do. It is no protection of privacy; it is no protection of constitutional liberty. It unleashes American spies on innocent Americans in utter disregard of the Fourth Amendment. Continue reading

The information, called in the wording “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites. Continue reading
