Epic Fail.

On June 7, 2013, in press, by True Feel

So in the news today, all of us loyal Verizon customers got some pretty bitter information that our phone records have been surrendered to the government (NSA) for our own “protection.” Though Obama’s idea of trying to “protect” America and it’s people of terrorist acts may have had good intention, this is certainly one of the most unconstitutional ways to go about it. I believe that anything can be acceptable within reason or to pinpoint a specific target, but not like this. They say you should have nothing to worry about since you’re not doing anything wrong. OK, that’s true, so leave our privacy where it should be and don’t snoop through something that’s not yours…and did you really think we’d never find out?

Now it’s time for some story-telling, more lies to protect the white house and it’s epic blunder of a plan, and try to sweet-talk American’s into trusting you won’t do something so intrusive and against everything this country stands for.

Here’s a small blurb from our friends over at Fox News:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or Affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, quoted in full above, was written to guarantee what the Framers called “the right to be let alone,” and what we have come to call “the right to privacy.”

The Supreme Court has ruled consistently and repeatedly that its contemporary purposes are to prevent dragnets and fishing expeditions, lest the rights of the innocent be assaulted along with those of the guilty.

In fact, when enforced, it compels all in government to show some evidence of guilt before a judge can authorize the secret or forceful seizure of private information from or about you.

In criminal prosecutions, when the government fails to follow the Fourth Amendment, the courts discard whatever evidence has been offered that is the fruit of those failures.

Thursday morning, the American people awoke to learn of the most monumental, gargantuan violation of American values in our history…

…What is the value of the Constitution if the government can violate it on such an unimaginable scale, and get away with the violations?

Shortly after the Constitutional Convention completed its work in Philadelphia in 1787, legend has it that a vagrant approached Benjamin Franklin and asked him what the Convention produced. He reportedly answered “A republic, Sir, if you can keep it.”

Thursday morning we learned that the Republic has been lost. It is now a dictatorship.

Somehow we knew this would happen. There was always something that seemed like we were being fed nothing much more than hopeful thoughts and false promises. We didn’t fall for it once, and certainly not twice. You are what you stand for. We never wanted this, and we’d never stand for it.

We were questioned and asked about the design by dozens of people. “What does it mean?”, “What does it represent?”, “Why is Dorothy having her basket searched?” Well, because she never did anything wrong, and neither did we…but somehow with the constitution and laws in place, we’re still not protected by our own country. Being spied on is being spied on, not matter how you look at it. Shame on you Mr. President. Now look what you did.
