Hello! I first would like to thank you con for excepting this debate.

Your first statement you simply stated was

"George bush passed the Patriot Act and now privacy doesn't exist anymore, it's an illusion." - harrytruman

Patriot Act: "The law gave new powers to the U.S. Department of Justice, the National Security Agency and other federal agencies on domestic and international surveillance of electronic communications; it also removed legal barriers that had blocked law enforcement, intelligence and defense agencies from sharing information about potential terrorist threats and coordinating efforts to respond to them." - http://searchdatamanagement.techtarget.com...

So this "Patriot Act" only applies to electronic communications, or simply put Electronics. How I see this is people only care about Modern privacy! Privacy doesn't limit itself to electronics does is? NO! "Privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves, or information about themselves, and thereby express themselves selectively. The boundaries and content of what is considered private differ among cultures and individuals, but share common themes." - https://en.wikipedia.org...
When you are sitting at home washing your dishes do you think that people are watching you and worrying about you or spying on you? No, if so then your aren't living in a very safe place. Jokes aside, seriously if you think about it, do you think that because someone can monitor your phone screen you can't privately go to the bathroom in your own house? Do you seriously believe that because someone permitted agencies to monitor your computer screen that's in your office watch you while you mow your lawn? DO YOU SERIOUSLY believe that since agencies monitor your iPad screen which is under charging on your nightstand watch you make breakfast at 5:00am on a Tuesday morning in the kitchen? You see that is what privacy is. Ok so maybe people can gain access to your bank account records, but once again Privacy doesn't just limit itself to what was created in the 20th century! The word privacy has been used since at least the 18th century.

Good luck Con in the next round.

So are you saying they put cameras in paint, grass, window panes, or even kitchen utensils?! Your point is invalid, for this reason. The NSA or any other organization does not watch you when your going to the bathroom in your own house, unless you have an electronic device with you. The fact that you only said one sentence is astonishing by the way.

Thanks for the debate, it was interesting.

Actually, an old man was arrested for talking about George Bush negatively, I'm not kidding you it's true, thus they were listening in on him.
