    Doesnt look like it here. "Hey dont spy on us, spy on other innocent people". Pretty hypocritical. Most "libertarians" are "libertarian" where they see fit.

    I'm not upset if we spy on other countries. I get upset when we spy on ourselves.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Ummm...yeah. Every government wants that. Every person wants that, are you new or something? It seems like exceedingly simple concepts, like "governments want information in order to make decisions" is incredibly groundbreaking to you.

    What is it that you thought intelligence agencies did?

    Yes that is the purpose of government to serve as a security apparatus for people. Which means they have to spy on others but never on the people it serves. Consistently libertarian in principle and philosophy.

    Is it about what the government wants or is it about what the people want? Afterall i thought it was government by the people and for the people, not the "we can do whatever the **** we want"
