Constitutional and civil rights lawyer John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institutes notes:
On any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.
Indeed, experts say that the type of spying being carried out by the NSA and other agencies is exactly the kind of thing which King George imposed on the American colonists … which led to the Revolutionary War.
Why should you care?
Because you – and every other American – has already broken the law numerous times today.
Moreover, government is “laundering” information gained through mass surveillance through other agencies, with an agreement that the agencies will “recreate” the evidence in a “parallel construction” … so they don’t have to admit that the evidence came from unconstitutional spying.
The highest-level NSA whistleblower of all time says that this is the opposite of following the Constitution, and is a “totalitarian process” which shows that we’re in a “police state”. (A second former top NSA official agrees.)
