This is not the Patriot Act...It's spying

Tyler, TX (KETK) — In years of doing this for a living I have never been overwhelmed.
But, then again, we've never had three weeks like we've had before.
The latest is the whistleblower went to The Guardian newspaper, probably because the
US media have all turned into stenographers for this administration.
It's very complex, but it's turning into this.
The Fourth Amendment states you can't do a search or seize unless there is probable cause.
After 9/11, The Patriot Act was signed into law.
That act meant you just didn't need probable cause anymore, you just needed reasonable suspicion.
Apologist for the President says George W. Bush started all this.
That doesn't wash, because this goes beyond reasonable suspicion, this is a dragnet.
What the government seems to be trying to pull is, trust us.
We won't answer to any federal judge about all this because we operate and spy on you in the dark.
If we had to disclose this, it would cause problems.
But, it is working, they say.
We didn't get tipped off about the Boston bombers doing this.
The Russians tried to tell us about them, but our government didn't listen.
They didn't want to be “Islamaphobioc.”
They say it's all about trust, but after what we are finding out about the IRS, you can turn private
information into a campaign weapon.
The Obama campaign knew all about Romney because of leaked info.
Austan Goolsbee and Harry Reid made reference to that during the election.
Who says those in power can’t eavesdrop to get the good on a campaign opponent?
You scoff, it was reported today that Google did that for the Obama campaign.
This is a bad thing.
The government is too big.
This is too spooky.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
