I believe the government should have the right to spy on its citizens because the security of our nation and its people is top priority.

First of all, the government would not be putting cameras in your house because imagine all the money and time it would take to be able to make a camera for every house hold, so let throw that absurd argument/comment out of the window. We are still in a recession.

Second, The government would use this as an enforcement against terrorism. Wouldn't you like to leave in a safer and better America? By knowing that when you get on a plane that there is no chance of a hijack or transfer of any kind of terrorism weapon because the government has already captured that person willing to cause damage to your fellow citizens and your country? This is why the government should be allowed to spy on Americans because it would capture any terrorist before they make that move, things such as 9/11 could have been stopped if the government would be allowed to spy on its citizens.

Third would be terrorist would be caught. Personally I would feel much better knowing that the government is out there looking for any person willing to cause damage to our nation and people, and when it comes to safety of the people, the government top priority will be just that the safety of the people and its citizens.
