Phone records may no longer be private.

It's reported, the Obama Administration is calling for surveillance to collect personal information from millions of Americans.

Some say, it's another way to gain control just like the IRS.

The National Security Agency is accessing phone records from millions of Americans.

Apparently, it's a court order requiring the nation's largest telecommunications company Verizon to hand over data.

Some call it invasion of privacy, Republicans call it 'Invasion of the Constitution'.

Davis Stein, President of the Smith County Republican Club says it's dead flat wrong.

"I'm surprised that anybody is surprised, I mean what did you think the NSA was going to doing, I mean it's not new," says David Henderson, Chairman of the Smith County Democratic Party.

The NSA is also targeting the largest internet corporations, and will have access to emails and photos.

Fox News is reporting, they're looking for terrorist activity.

David Stein says, he doesn't know how this is possible especially when the constitution protects the people against improper search and seizure.

Stein says , the Obama Administration is over-stepping its boundaries.

"This administration absolutely has no regard for the constitution and what it stands for," says Davis Stein, President of the Smith County Republican Club

David Henderson is the Chairman of the Smith County Democratic Party.

He says, it's a trade off between unlimited freedom and perfect security.

"Airing on the side of invasion of privacy in this era is probably important if saves a lot of lives," David Henderson, Chairman of the Smith County Democratic Party.

You've seen it all over the headlines, the Obama Administration is defending this program.

President Obama says, it's not spying. He says, it's simply a way to prevent another terrorist attack.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ~Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

David Stein, the face behind Tyler's latest home invasion robbery by way of the tax office, is all about the constitution, now. These local "Yucks" who want to stand on the "peoples side" today while they eye a public office to be gained in the future is pathetic. WE don't need you Stein to define the Republican position of a government gone wrong, we can see that ourselves with every photo-op Jihad John McCain makes with Al quaida, or Lindsey Graham's "we're just not enlightened" speech.

A lot of Republicans in the Texas delegation are griping today about the NSA’s domestic surveillance program. But over the past decade — in a series of five votes — very few current GOP members of the Texas congressional delegation have voted against requests by Presidents Bush or Obama to increase federal government power over Internet data and phone records.

1984 and soylent green is people....

Wow the Obama Administration uses the IRS to suppress anyone who voices views contrary to Obama and the Democrats, NSA to spy on ALL the people, ATF rungs guns to cartels to get more gun control, and the Justice Department also spies on reporters who actually report the news!

Wow.... 1984 and soylent green is people.
