The good news about NSA surveillance...

I really believe that for now there is too much information and unless you are a select target, no one is watching you.  So, in that respect, things aren't much different than it would be since a select target is likely to have been subjected to surveillance under the old methods.

That said, we still have to be vigilant about changing the rules and curbing back this invasive government because humans solve problems by refining systems. Unless We the People reject this form of government, there is a likelihood that the surveillance system will morph into a true police state with all the cultural accoutrements taking political correctness to a whole new level.

Let's keep this in mind and as we make choices, choose liberty.  Liberty is the gift of choice.
