The above link will lead you to a New York Times article and 8 minute video. The subject is William Binney, a 32 year veteran of the National Security Agency.Binney left when the NSA turned its spy technologies onto the American people.
He is a true patriot, and has faced harrassment and threats from the US government for speaking out about secretive and invasive policies that historical fascist regimes could only have dreamed of.
As a patriot and whistleblower, Binney is someone we need to know and listen to. The fact is that we no longer have constitutional rights and freedoms. If that doesn't bother you, then you're numb, dumb, or both.
I have written before about the Patriot Act (signed by Bush) and the NDAA (signed by Obama). I hope you educate yourself about these acts, and become more interested in learning more.
Things are moving very quickly now, and there's always more. I shudder for young people and future generations.
We all share the responsibility for what becomes of our country. Sorry, dear reader, showing up at the voting booth is just not enough. You actually have to take it upon yourself to get educated. Your government has been high jacked.
I am not saying there are no good people serving in office. There are 13 Senators who are sponsoring a bill to stop this erosion of our right to privacy. However, many people serving in high ranking positions are subject to forces that you don't understand, because no one has ever told you about them.
It is my quest to get you to pay attention to what is happening to our country before it's too late for us to do anything about it.
