On A Personal Level - I Agree

by Mark on July 14th, 2008

Others may not but I do…


“Two and a half years ago, EFF sued AT&T on behalf of its customers, seeking to hold the telecom giant responsible for its craven complicity in the White House’s illegal warrantless wiretapping program.

Since then, the phone companies and their allies in Washington have spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying Congress to grant them retroactive immunity. They ran ridiculous fear-mongering attack ads against any politician who dared to oppose them. President Bush threatened to veto any bill that allowed EFF’s lawsuit to continue.”

Our rights as Americans are being wiped off the slate by this administration and the Telecoms because of - MONEY and the smoke screen of FEAR!

Help EFF Continue the Fight Against Warrantless Wiretapping

“We need your help to take the fight to the next level. We’re going to challenge Congress’s unconstitutional grant of immunity in our case against AT&T. We’re going to fight for a congressional repeal of immunity in the next Congress. And we’re going to file a new lawsuit against the government, challenging its warrantless surveillance practices, past, present and future.”

    I totally agree - with one exception. You state ‘this administration’ but both the democrats and the republicans have unanimously backed the reduction of our personal freedoms and right to privacy through these decisions. Please check the voting record and write your congressman and senators.

    This country was founded on the Bill of Rights. At one time, that didn’t extend to companies; however, now our country is putting business rights before the rights of an individual.

    You’re right on point Douglas, thanks…

    You and Douglas make excellent points. However, this is still a democracy and both right and left wings only get away with what the American people allow them to get away with.

    The term “Use it or Lose it” comes to mind. If people aren’t exercising their freedoms they don’t value them enough to fight for them. If people spend more time deciding on their American Idol vote than their president and Congress, then we’ll continue to lose more and more freedoms.

    Whether or not the American people vote or do not vote for a certain measure does not determine whether or not it violates or does not violate the constitution. You would love for an informed public that can make an appropriate decision - but - unfortunately, the driving disinformation by our two party system can drive votes in the wrong direction.

    It’s also important to note that we are NOT a pure democracy. We have an judicial and executive branch of government which have just as much power as the representation. I’ll add as well that we have a congress and senate. Senate does not reflect democracy, it represents states.

    It’s a complex government system that has worked well for quite some time. But that doesn’t make it perfect. We need to always maintain vigilance against distortion of the original rights and freedoms.
