Why Government Snooping in Your Info Isn't Cool

"Meh, if you aren't doing anything wrong then why does it matter?". The problem evolves when the government's determination of what is wrong contradicts what you think is right, for example, Obama thinks abortion is legal from conception up to and including birth. Some people don't think so and voice their opinion as such. IRS has determined that opinions not in line with liberal thinking is wrong.

Great point, Epsondon! Coming on the heels of the IRS scandal sure does make you think twice.

And with Obamacare, that same agency -- the IRS -- will now be determining "compliance." How's that going to work out for those with the "wrong" kind of thinking?
Since hearing the news that the government has been secretly tracking the phone calls of hundreds of millions of Americans, some have argued, "Meh, if you aren't doing anything wrong then why does it matter?" But the truth is, it does matter.


The NSA system allows the government to monitor calls of innocent people, before they've done anything wrong. If sometime in the future a specific individual does something wrong, either on purpose or by accident, the government can then go back into the system and look through everything that person has every done...
