RE: American Stasiland

11/04/2011

Dear US Government,

We are seeing a pattern with the uptick in North American continental surveillance. It’s important to not decieve yourselves about the fact the public notices what is going on. We are conscious of your trying to get us to pay for it.

Please remember, what you do today has far reaching effects on innocent people who didn’t ask for the economic downturn or an intractable profiteer Congress.

This is just a reminder The Constitution is there to protect you too.

If there’s an internal threat, like someone holding a gun to your head and forcing you to standardize mass surveillance in America; it isn’t the working, the poor, the students, or the people trying to get through the day. If someone is closing up America, so that it behaves more like North Korea, it didn’t happen by our vote or by our hand.

If you are being bullied into making bad decisions, like converting America into a Stasi surveillance policy farm, you had better speak up so we can help you.  Something is not right if we woke up today with less freedom because of a pushy surveillance lobby. If you’ve lost your compass, let us help.

We are more reasonable than you think, but you need to share the burden.

Thanks,

The 99%

In the space of a month, we are seeing some real problems and cause for longterm concern:
