Unless we limit the power of National Security, America is doomed. Most of the people may survive, but our nation of constitutional law and limited government will be lost forever.
Unfettered National Security has demanded:
- The Nation must be able to access any electronic communication.
- The Nation must be able to access any stored information.
- The Nation must know where everybody travels.
- The Nation must know what everybody buys.
- The Nation must know who we talk to.
- The Nation must know what we say.
Under the guise of National Security, our Nation claims the powers of a god: Omnipresence & Omniscience, And shockingly we find that the NSA is making a credible attempt to achieve godlike power, one project at a time.
The NSA has demonstrated the ability to access, effect, alter, and destroy almost any information on the planet. Rigging electronic elections is trivial. They can track, divert or stop the flow of goods and services. The banking systems are just another system of information flows. They can track, divert or stop the flow of money. Controlling governments and corporations flows naturally from their already demonstrated acts.
These are not powers that any sane person would grant to a government. In all the history of mankind, every government has turned to tyranny under the temptations of far lesser power.
Or government is already mutating under the temptation of this power. Greed for this power has turned it away from the rule of law and our constitution. The treatment of the whistle-blowers shows it is willing to crush and destroy people to acquire the power. Once government has consolidated the power, what is the chance the end mutation will be beneficent?
It is time to act or run. And the world is too small for running.
