The system is explained by William Binney, 32 years in the NSA, and code breaker who resigned from the NSA in protest over the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping regime. He says that after 9/11, the methods he helped create for spying on foreign powers became pointed domestically – not toward people suspected of terrorism ties, but toward all Americans. - http://www.aclu.org/blog/national-security/video-nsa-whistleblower-explains-how-us-government-spying-every-single
Binney describes details about Stellar Wind, the N.S.A.’s top-secret domestic spying program. An amazing video posted on The New York Times website lays out in chilling detail how the National Security Agency is sucking up every piece of communication data in America – from phone calls to emails to cell phone location – and has the ability to tie together all of the information for a single person (watch him speak about project Stellar Wind here) - http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/23/opinion/the-national-security-agencys-domestic-spying-program.html?_r=1

Why won’t the Obama administration reveal how many Americans’ emails the NSA has collected and reviewed without a warrant? Since last year, a few members of Congress—led by democrat Senator Ron Wyden—have been trying to get the Obama administration to answer a simple question: how many Americans’ phone calls or emails have been and are being collected and read without a warrant under the authority of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 (FAA)? Unfortunately, no one else in the government seems to want that question answered. - https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/06/why-wont-obama-administration-reveal-how-many-americans-phone-calls-or-emails
Why did this unconstitutional Bush spy regime policy get a YEA vote in 2008 from Obama when he was a senator? Senate vote record on FAA of 2008 - 27 D nays... 22 D yeas...46 R yeas... - http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/110-2008/s168
Why does such a large percentage of the government seem to work for the Neocon agenda?
How can you dismiss the entire supreme court and overturn the citizens united vote and ban contribution based politics?
With how many people are bought into propaganda I don't see voting for real candidates happening in this country without dismissing the supreme court and overturning contribution based politics.
The majority of congress is corrupt to the tooth and the majority of people will vote to re-elect so many of them. Both presidential "options" as people like to call them are backed by billions from corporate and bankster contributions while real candidates with no financial backing are dismissed and go unknown.
How do you stop warrantless wiretapping when the majority of elected "representatives" are passing legislation to make it happen?
