    Should American's have private electronic communications?

    Snowden’s e-mail provider is closing, cannot legally say why

    Should there be electronic communications that are beyond the governments reach?

    No....I think people need to realize that there is no privacy on the internet period.

    I realize that just fine, but I don't accept the government having the authority to read or look at anything being said.

    The idea that we don't expect privacy merely because we have been denied it in the past is no excuse at all. Unless they have a warrant and probable cause, the government should not have more access to my private communications than I have access to the private e-mails of other DP users.

    Just because someone can hack my information doesn't mean that the government should be legally allowed to do it.

    This scandal will be the deathblow to cloud services. That companies are not fighting it will cost them dearly in the long run.

They HAVE the info they just cant FIND the info. Well at least in a timely manner. Oppositional governments get around the NSA all the time, just like our government does as well.

    I HAVE private communications with those I require to have such type communication. The government could intercept the communications they still have to figure out if its a message and then if they think it is decrypt it. I wish em luck. They will need it. I am very paranoid when it comes to communications security. I don't even trust off the shelf encryption programs. I use my own programs. Paranoia pays dividends when it comes to security.

    Then they will do what they are already doing--letting the British who are not subject to US law do the spying and then give it to the US government. There is no way you are going to win this battle unless you disconnect from society, deal only in cash, and live in a tent in the woods.

    They should use Commodore 64's. I hear those were revolutionary.
