    Lot of socialists in the GOP who voted for the patriot act and this NSA mass-spying thing...

    Your last comment seemed to be in favor of a more surveillance.

    Never underestimate the recruitment power of a cultist vein of a religion.

    But yes... that's it, you've solved it. Amazing! They are such radical nut-jobs they just look the other way when we fund and arm proxy wars against them, covertly remove democratic gov'ts then install and support brutal dictators in their place, denying them their own resources for generations, and on and on... obviously none of that bothers them at all... They hate us because we're freeeeeee..... ROFLMMFAO

    Well, if a person so chooses, they can go back through the annuals of our history and discover that our government divulges very little information to us in comparison to what they keep hidden away from our collective purview. Questions are asked by us but rarely are they answered. This all happens under the influence of our money - taken from our hardwork - to finance their secretive ways in which they keep us in the dark. So, we are very much at their mercy, for they control information and knowledge.

    Voting people in or out of office makes, really, no difference. Take the C.I.A. for example. That governmental agency has been around for over sixty years. How much oversight (control) do the men and women of Congress or the Senate have over it? They're supposed to have a lot, but there are records of restrictions to their oversight. So instead of a bunch of lawmakers being read-in on something, only a small concentration of people are in the know. And where's the oversight when the President meets with the Director of National Intelligence and tells him to do something... or is briefed himself of the often autonomous actions of the intelligence community? There is none.

    Some of the problem is undoubtedly lawmakers. But voting people in and out of office because they displease us will not solve the root problem: intelligence agencies. It is their secrecy and information withholding practices that offend people. Sure, they have clever retorts for why they cannot be transparent, but I say our clever retort to their dismissals of our desires is to dismiss them of their funds and their jobs. They need to remember who the lords are of America. It certainly is not them, though they like to think so.
