Proposed surveillance limits could force US to 'go dark', says Mitch McConnell

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said on Sunday that legislation concerning the federal government’s powers of surveillance that was passed by the House of Representatives this week could cause the country to “go dark” when it comes to collecting Americans’ phone records.

McConnell said that if such a state of affairs came about, “we’ll not be able to have yet another tool that we need to combat this terrorist threat from overseas”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mitch, you are a tyrant's wet-dream!

First, under the Fourth Amendment, the government is not allowed at will to peek into our private lives, drool over naked pictures of our lovers, steal our business secrets, (all of which they have been caught doing) etc.

Second, in 12 years of living under tyranny, the NSA, TSA, DHS, FBI, CIA have not actually prevented any terror attacks. Yes, they have set up a bunch of innocent patsies to be arrested for propaganda purposes, but no real terrorists, and the reason is simple. As we demonstrated 6 times over at my website, anyone with modest programming skills can write systems of encryption the NSA simply cannot break. Which means the entire surveillance system you are so in love with is only able to spy on law abiding citizens. That means it is a hideous waste of time, money, manpower, and other resources.

But Mitch, I will make you a deal. We The People will allow total surveillance over our phone calls and emails and texts ... as soon as all members of Congress allow We The People the same access to your emails, phone calls, and texts. Fair enough?
