Has the NSA no shame? Do they know no boundaries? With recent revelations, the answer to both is a resounding NO.
The National Security Agency spied on the future Pope Francis before and during the Vatican conclave at which he was chosen to succeed Benedict XVI, it was claimed on Wednesday.
The American spy agency monitored telephone calls made to and from the residence in Rome where the then Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio stayed during the conclave, the secret election at which cardinals chose him as pontiff on March 13.
I feel like we're now living in a science fiction novel. Remember how the all seeing eye would monitor everyone at anytime? Well, fiction has become nonfiction. And instead of science fiction it has turned to horror.
There are many implications to the NSA's intrusions into our civil liberties which can be written. However, what is the scariest thing now is that that their knowledge gives the government complete control over all of us. It may seem far reaching but just think about it. Remember, knowledge is power, and the more knowledge the government has on you the more power it can hold over your head.
You think it may sound paranoid but in reality it isn't. Humor me for a second to think about the scenario I will put forward. As the government goliath grows daily, so does its rules, regulations and mandates. And you and I can be both see by Obama's actions and statements, he doesn't like any dissention. In fact, he wants everyone in line at all times. So what happens now if you step out of line--maybe you want to exert your free speech about our unconstitutional president. Previously, the government realistically could do nothing about public dissent. However now with all their information they have on all of us and their ever expanding IRS system, they can throw the book at anyone at any time. In fact, they have amassed so much information about each and every one of us, they could manufacture facetious charges against any person at any time. Just think of the spin they could make on any of our personal information. Just think of the charges they could trump up. The possibilities are endless.
We've already seen that people who've spoken against Obama get suddenly audited. Is it fair or constitutional? No but it is happening. So now with the government watching at all times and with the fear of negative repercussions against dissent, people will follow their rules, laws and mandates without exception. Dissent will be minimized. They will be able to shove any progressive ludicrous program down our throats without a single concern.
Welcome to America!
