Actually, We shouldn't trust google. Sometimes, google puts your site at the top when you give google a large amount of money, and here are some reasons why we shouldn't trust google.
-encrypted information would still be intercepted by the intelligence agencies and have no effect on legal requirements for any tech company to furnish data when demanded. -http://thehackernews.com...
-Google account managers exist to maximize your spend even if that is done at the expense of your profitability.

-there are a spate of news articles that seem to claim that Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft, Google et al. are requesting that the government disclose more about NSA data requests to the general public. Perhaps we can't trust the government.

Now can we trust google? 'Just google it' is not the right joke. There are much more articles about not trusting google.

Well, aren't these sites from google? Then, can yourself trust it? It seems like all 3 sites were searched on google.

I'm sorry that I'm saying this now, right before the voting period, but please send me a proof.
Is there a proof that those sites are from google?
Is there a proof that we should trust google?
You didn't say anything about that. Thanks for challenging and wasting your time.

Vote Con.

Yes, you can trust google. But it is not a Blind trust. They are a for profit company and I can trust that they will do what is in its power to make money

Reasons for voting decision: While I do feel that Google, for the most part, is a trustworthy company, Con gave the best reasoning and sources to believe otherwise. Pro's argument seemed to largely be "We should trust Google because it's great!" which doesn't fly in a debate.
