My pride was short lived, however, when I read about the depths of the data mining operation that our government has been carrying out for about six years. And it seems that a wide variety of our communication companies and tools, like the internet, wireless and even land lines and their providers are being compliant with the government's quest to know everything there is to know about us.
But there is something even more sinister than this going on. You even have a large number of supposed conservatives in the Senate, men like Graham, Chambliss and McCain, who should know better finding no fault with this. I haven't mentioned any Democrats since we all know that they have little regard, in fact mostly disdain, for our freedoms. Saying this I must apologize to Ron Wyden of Oregon who is supporting Rand Paul in his efforts to turn this around. Thank you, Senator.
America, this should make you very upset and determined to get to work to change the direction of our country. And I know there are many other issues that are also critical, like the IRS scandal, EPA atrocious actions, the Admiistration's clear support for Islam and war against Christianity, and on and on and on. But nothing, I repeat, nothing is more critical than our right to privacy in things that we do. And if we stand idly by and accept this travesty in the name of security, we will have neither security or freedom. We will just become players on the stage of a real life version of Orwell's 1984.
Stand up, Patriots. Stand up for freedom, our privacy, our liberty and, above all, our God. For if we let the NSA or any other government-sanctioned entity to operate unchallenged like this, all that those men did who were commemorated yesterday was done in vain.
Freedom isn't just a word. It's a state of mind and an active part of America. Defend it from tyranny.
