Does the rationale of the feds using secret cyber data mining for national security's sake take precedence over an individual's privacy rights?

  1. Yes
  2. No

Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

"You regularly hijack topics so you can feel good about yourself. "

And you write things like this to feel good about yourself? I'd rather be me.

I post the articles I do because the LameStream media doesn't cover these things much. The only reason they are covering all these scandals, instead of covering for Obama as usual, is the Administration went after the Press this time.

It sounds to me like you just don't like to hear the truth, especially as it is digging your fav socialist a hole he will probably never get out of.

"... you go off topic on all these polls with your hatred of everything Obama. We get it. You don't like him."

Make sure you let the bug know this when he does his usual "it's Bush's fault" rant.

As Bob said, most likely every administration does things that we don't know about but it doesn't make it right. I was very concerned about the loss of privacy rights under President Bush and how can anyone think it's just fine after six scandals. Come on...if you think it's ok for Obama to do this to his political enemies, do you want to risk the next President?

President Obama was not in the Senate when the Patriot Act was first passed in 2001, he did not take office till 2005 and voted for its reauthorization in 2006.

I was listening to a replay of a rant Obama went on back when Bush was pushing the Patriot Act. I believe he stated that "there is no excuse" for such action. I suppose we just blame this current issue on Bush since he started it, right? While we're at it, we should also blame Bush for the current state of warfare in the middle east, the current issue of Fast & Furious, and so on, because the Obama administration is apparently nothing more than an extension of the Bush administration. Hope and Change? Forward?

The leadership of the Obama administration isn't unraveling.....its unraveled. Game Over.

Your kidding right? Just yesterday, the question was about taxing online poker and you used it as an occasion to go on an anti Obama rant about guns. You regularly hijack topics so you can feel good about yourself. Not calling you racist, just a one trick pony (and a tiring one)

Nice job Phoenix. How soon (or conveniently) they forget.

"The New York Times" Yes how soon they forget when his dad was VP who knows what they did. All presidents do things that we don't know of tell later. And the next president will do the same.

The New York Times, Dec. 16, 2005, "15 months after the Sep. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the U.S. to search for evidence of terrorist activity without court warrants". The Bush Administrations warrantless wiretap program, doesn't that ring a bell, it was big news at the time, or did you suddenly develope amnesia?

"I'm sure those who are just as outraged felt the same way about this program when it was started under President Bush,"

Nice try. Bush's program tracked FOREIGN calls, Obama tracks ALL American calls. And internet traffic. And email.

"There is a cost to freedom, "

Of course, but that cost shouldn't unConstitutional surveillance of EVERY American. I don't know about you, but I am not and have never been in communication with terrorists.

"WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's administration is likely to open a criminal investigation into the leaking of highly classified documents that revealed the secret surveillance of Americans' telephone and email traffic, U.S. officials said on Friday.

The law enforcement and security officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly, said the agencies that normally conduct such investigations, including the FBI and Justice Department, were expecting a probe into the leaks to a British and an American newspaper."

Typical of this corrupt Administration. Go after the whistle-blowers instead of those violating the Fourth Amendment.

This is a huge invasion of privacy and needs to be stopped immediately. Having said that, I'm sure those who are just as outraged felt the same way about this program when it was started under President Bush, correct?

I see the freedom-hating Obamabots are out in force already.

Say, why don't you all move to Cuba? It's already a Communist country, so you don't have to ruin ours.

HEADLINR: Obama's Civil-Liberties Record Questioned

"The disclosure of a broad government effort to collect phone records of millions of U.S. consumers has rekindled a debate about President Barack Obama's commitment to civil liberties, with some lawmakers and advocacy groups saying he has broken a campaign pledge to combat terrorism in ways that protect basic freedoms."

HEADLINE: Progressives, Democrats must stand with New York Times against Obama on NSA phone records collection

"The events of the past month – from the Associated Press subpoena to the James Rosen search warrant to the revelation that our government has been indiscriminately collecting phone records data – have forced liberals to make a choice between complacency and outrage, between keeping silent because one of our own is in the White House and calling him out on betraying the principles for which we have fought for so long."
