Its not because of the type of data the NSA was collecting, it is the fact that theyw ere doing it in the first place which is a violation of the 4th amendment.

wait, nah, hold on. The government is definitely wrong in this pic but that definitely doesn't make the girl right. There is such a thing as a ceiling to public expression. Free speech isn't always targeted at the government, and assuredly not always when it's controversial matters.    
   
Slander? Political and religious propgaganda? Intrusion of privacy? We have many reasons to restrict free speech.

Snowden a self-proclaimed whistle-blower recently started telling everyone about how the gov't is monitoring electronic communications. He also explained how it's been used to monitor other countries as well. So being reminded of how this has been going on, many people are having fun debating the topic.

I have mixed feelings about it. Everyone should be allowed their privacy but, as long as the information is only used to monitor for terrorism or pedos I don't really care since I'm neither. I'm more upset about how it's been used to monitor other countries and not just our own. Just my own take on it.

tl;dr A whistle blower came forth and now everyone's jimmies are rustled because of something that's been public knowledge for awhile now.

Basically, ever since the Patriot Act was enacted after 9/11, the federal government has been monitoring and recording internet searches, phone calls, emails, essentially all forms of electronic communication, within the U.S. to look for terrorists. Many, myself included, see this as a gross violation of the Fourth Amendment, a citizen's right to privac. But, of course, the Patriot Act ***** all over that because we let it get enacted since, at the time, Americans were all scared of the terrorists and wanted to feel safe.

But the Bush and Obama DJ 4DM1Nistrations have said over and over they aren't spying on Americans. They were only using the NDAA and the Patriot act to get the bad terrorists.

We know this is a lie now.

I fear government censorship because I intend to make my living creating video games, I am putting down 50,000 dollars and four years of my life on an education to make video games and when the government starts censoring everything that might offend anyone anywhere then pretty soon no one likes the things they are censoring and as such entertainment and media becomes bland and lifeless.

I fear unrestricted free speech because then people could lie without having to worry about political repercussions, I very much enjoy being able to see what's in the food I eat, and I like knowing that if someone tells me they are charging me 5 dollars for a burger I can hold them to that and not come home to a totally legitimate 50 dollar fee.

I fear spiders because you never know what you're in for with those guys, I had a bunch of medium ones that lived under my bed for longest time and they never ****** with me then this itsy bitsy spider came up my couch and bit me and off rotted a chunk out of my leg the size of a loony and about a half inch deep I still have a scar the size of a dime there.

why is everybody freaking out right now about the fact that the government is spying your conversation? it was publicly released back in 2005 when the ECHELON system was put in place...
#32 - ooberfriskyzanon (06/15/2013) [-]
I feel like most people don't understand. The government doesn't spy on everyone. Not without reason. The NSA leak is trying to be covered back up because the techniques used to track down targets were exposed to the enemy. Sure the data is collected, but if it serves no purpose to a mission, it is discarded. Why should it be kept if there's nothing of use; say calling a friend. On the other hand, talk about pipebombs and **** like that, then they have reason to analyze further. Hate all you want, but NSA has kept us safe.
#43 to #32 - swagbot (06/15/2013) [-]
No - not in the U.S.

We deal with threats as they arise - that's what a vigilant, armed, publicly-involved general populace and local police forces are for.

We have all been tricked into thinking that Towel-Headed Middle-Eastern Men are cooking up thermonuclear bombs in the dark alleys of every city - turns out that the 'Muslim Terrorist' threat is exaggerated to the extreme.

Consider this:
- How many people are killed by ordinary domestic violent crimes per year in the U.S.? Few ten-thousand.
- How many people die from disease/car crashes per year? Several hundred thousand.
- How many U.S. citizens people have died from terrorist attacks IN THE HISTORY OF THE U.S.? 4000 MAX, assuming 9/11 was legit (which it wasn't - READ: www.911truth.org/)

So, officials cannot name a SINGLE TERRORIST PLOT thwarted by their Dragnet security system in the ~10 "dangerous" years its been operating...
... But they have been targeting Political enemies and dissidents.

Wake up, buddy. Everything is NOT well. We are in 1984 now.
Scary? Yes! But not unbeatable.

Sorry, stopped reading when you lost all credibility by pulling the 911 conspiracy link.
#48 to #47 - swagbot (06/15/2013) [-]
Okay... whatever.

FYI, i was once (as in just a few months ago) on your side - i laughed and laughed at "Truthers", reveling in HOW ******* DUMB THEY MUST BE and how (clearly) more sane and intellectually superior (and Patriotic) I was...

So, i decided to check out some Truther videos for a laugh... Then the details got my attention, and i kept watching... Then, I (skeptically) finished the video. Then, annoyed, i watched it again. Then, I looked up their corroborating sources.

"Lost all credibility", huh? Go to the site, look at the contributors. Are any of then tin-foil-wearing weirdos or 'Hippies'. Do they look any less credible than the gov't officials describing the events?

Don't speak until you have viewed the other side.

But of course... I know what you're gonna do. You're going to allow the safe, comforting part of your brain to swallow you up, laugh to express your surety of your beliefs, and ignore it.

If you have nothing to fear, then take a dip in the other side...

Dude, did I not say you'd do exactly this two comments ago?

This is what nay-sayers always say: "What you're pitching is SOOO insane, I don't even have to consider it."

That's a Thought-Terminating Cliche, and it indicates that you are afraid of looking deeper into the issue that you're deriding.

Bro.. I'm ON THE OTHER SIDE of this issue now. You're not gonna convince ME. I'm posting to cure YOU of your ignorance. If you think I'm so wrong, look at the videos, pick them apart, and send points back to me.

InB4 "I Don't have time for that you're just crazy." Well, the point is, you're lazy or don't care.

The things is that you're looking only at 'terrorist plots'. What about High Value Targets overseas, or across boarders? Everyone is for the troops out there finding and getting the 'bad guys', but no one is for the people who feed them their intelligence? They don't have to foil plots. It's not their main purpose. The purpose is 'national security'.

And why do you fear the NSA? What have you lost because of this? Nothing. No one has come to your door asking about texting your friends, or posting on Funnyjunk. You've probably never been interrogated for things like a Facebook post or Twitter or a phone call, or anything. You're going to live out your life just as you have even before the leaks. So, in reality, what you have you lost?
#54 to #49 - swagbot (06/16/2013) [-]
PM me. Those are great questions but you just opened the door to a HUGE conversation that's really tedious to read over piecemeal comments.

And then people who do want to hurt the country get the info that we release allowing the to more easily get through our defenses.

Turns out NSA does't look the **** unless you are a highly suspected person and even then it is only who you call, something regular in normal cases. And that anyone who breaks the codes gets sent out.
#40 to #16 - nightstar (06/15/2013) [-]
The problem is the DJ 4DM1Nistration gets to decide who the terrorists are. Then gets to decide how to go after them using secret judges and secret courts. They don't have to share how they do any of it.
#51 to #40 - hitro (06/15/2013) [-]
I know that is the problem but releasing who they are looking at and what they do to find things out and the secrets of how they keep our country safe would drastically reduce how safe we would be as a country. The real terrorist would be able to get in to our country and screw things over much easier, which is why it is classified.


Yes they do get to decide who the terrorist are but as a person who knows someone who works at the NSA. They are not interested in who you are talking to they are intesrested in people who can really hurt this country.



In fact it requires such a high level of evidence that when they wanted to do it to the person who ended up as one of the Boston bombers they weren't allowed because they found nothing suspicious about him in their one allowed chat to him. ( If the Russians had been more consistent with their communication to us something could be different.

and it is getting ridiculous with the amount of post of people saying that they are listening to the conversations of people because they arent and one who breaks the strict rules is kicked out.
#52 to #51 - nightstar (06/15/2013) [-]
The terrorists have already destroyed this country. We've been in Afghanistan for 12 years now. That is our longest conflict, and what do we have to show for it? We killed Bin laden? He wasn't even in Afghanistan!! We are treated like children when we want to travel on an airplane. Our government is trying to figure out how to use drones over our own cities. Our government has killed American citizens with drones without trial or any checks and balances.


The real terrorist got what they wanted on September 11, 2001. We lost our ******* minds., or at least the people living in D.C. did.
#56 to #52 - hitro (06/16/2013) [-]
And those of New York.

But I mean more terrorist attacks on united states soil.
None of the rest of your comment has to do with the NSA and what they did but with what terrorist did and drone use.
