“Liberals” for the Surveillance State

I was going to write a post on how America is going to hell in a handbasket, and then I remembered an article I did on America going to hell in a handbasket and so I was just going to repost that, but I changed my mind and I’ll try to write this. Maybe it’s a midlife crisis, I don’t know (I’ll be 110 years old?)

In that linked article from 2013, I mentioned circumstances that haven’t changed in the least now. In fact, just yesterday the U.S. Senate voted to reauthorize and expand the unconstitutional surveillance powers of the evil national security state that could be used to suck innocent Americans into some sting entrapment case, just as the feds did to Donald Trump’s campaign and as the FBI illicitly entrapped Mike Flynn.

In this current reauthorization, Democrats like Nancy Lugosi have been gung-ho in undoing Americans’ right to due process. Even the two Democrat New Hampshire senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan voted for further government spying of innocent people. (So much for “Live Free or Die” New Hampshire.)

As Yogi Berra would say, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” In that aforementioned 2013 article, I wrote,

Just the fact that the House of Representatives’ vote against Congressman Justin Amash’s amendment to defund the NSA’s warrantless bulk-spying program was such a close vote, is an encouraging prospect.

But it kind of gets a little less encouraging.

While it is good that the vote was close, we saw that the Pelosi-Democrat Establishment twisted arms to get people to vote to preserve the government’s criminal spying.

And would you believe that the majority of those congresspeople who voted against the Amash amendment had actually received twice as much as the Yes-voters in campaign donations from the very defense and intelligence contractors who profit from that program? Yup.

So how’s that “We the People” thing working out for you?
