Who is "we", I doubt it's you. I'll take 100% privacy any day. Your "security" has made us targets.

Cowardly to betray your own Constitution, but very American (drones etc...horrible new ethics)

How 'bout 100% rule by Constitutional law.

Now we have no security & no privacy. I'm more afraid of my gov't than terrorists.
