Interesting documentary
8 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Iam all for protecting the people but there a point when things go to far and we gone way beyond that.

The NSA no just tracking terrorists its coping everything with out regard for warrants or what the rights of the people are.

They are spying on their own allies and lying to the public.

Then they go after the people for breaking the law by exposing them and totally disregard the fact they broke the laws in the first place.

There a old saying when the constitution was written up.

The people should not fear the government but the government should fear the people.

By their very actions they creating the governments that these terrorists fear so much.

These guys aren't all saints by any stretch by they have shown that we need to take back control and make the governments responsible to the people once again.
