      If we keep going the "keep us safe" route, no one will ever object.  We will never run out of pant pissers who hide under the bed and whine for the illusion of safety.  As long as the next invasion of privacy is sold in the name of public safety, it will be accepted.

      But if it's sold as a tool for political dominance, then we have a fighting chance.  I'd love to see some of the following CTs be believed just as passionately as Palin's ACA death panels.

      1)  The NSA wants to know exactly where the survivalists are hoarding their guns and ammo.  Have  secret bunker on that back acre?  Now the NSA knows where it is.

      2)  Location data is fed directly to the IRS.  So that when the time to audit and sieze the property of the Tea Party, the IRS knows just where to look.  That cabin in the woods bought with cash under an assumed name?  Gone.

      3)  Teabaggers will not be allowed to overthrow the government.  If more than 3 baggers are present at any one location, they're plotting an armed insurection - send in SWAT.

      I want government spying shut down, and I'm perfectly happy to use fear and paranoia to do so.
