Government Surveillance: Should government be allowed to watch our every move?

Asked by: andyjfraser
  • Yes, it should.

    You don't have anything to worry about if you aren't doing anything wrong. If you aren't doing anything wrong, it doesn't matter whether the government is watching; live your life in the open. However, if you have something to hide, you should probably be in jail anyway. Innocent people hide nothing.

  • Yes I agree; the government should have our back...Look what we do for them

    Many terrorists have been caught because of their surveillance, and, honestly, it doesn't hurt us. I think the government should keep watch on us...They protect us from terrorists and if your not doing anything wrong, you won't be worried about them "finding" you. Yeah, so, i agree with government surveillance

  • The spying has caused no harm, only good.

    There have been over 50 cases where terrorist plots have been stopped because of this spying. The information that has been collected has done no harm. They use it when necessary, but it has still caused to harm. If this spying wasn't in place there would be real lives lost.

  • The Innocent Have Nothing to Worry About

    I think that if you're not doing anything wrong, then you shouldn't be worried about surveillance. Living in any country, or being a citizen, means that you give up some rights in order for protection. Anyway, most of the data the government collects, like on phones, is never used, it's just kinda filtered through looking for key words.

  • Without the Government protecting us there would be nobody to complain about losing their rights.

    The government protects our way of life. When the constitution was written you couldn't bomb a building with the press of a button or shoot with an automatic weapon. The amount of people with evil on their minds and bad intentions is unprecedented. In a world full of technology more protective steps have to be taken. The government does no focus on the trivial things they find so anybody opposing the steps taken to keep us safe obviously have something to hide.

  • The Resolution Act!

    Literally without the Government knowing about the crimes taking place, society would be screwed. Think about all the killings that take place in the entire world! The last thing the Government wants is to affect society in a negative way. Without the Government everything would be a disaster!!! Better yourself before you judge others!! Most people don't realize what Obama even does to better your lives!! Y'all don't realize that all these conspiracy theories have been slowly brainwashing you over the years!!

  • Yes the Government should look out for us!!

    Literally without the Government helping society, most of us would have been buried 6 feet deep underground. Think about all the killings that take place in the entire world! Who keeps your families safe at night! Without the Government everything would be a disaster!!! Better yourself before you judge others!! Most people don't realize what Obama even does to better your lives!! Y'all don't realize that all these conspiracy theories have been slowly brainwashing you over the years!!

  • Totally out of Order

    Having an ultimate, all-knowing, superior government makes me extremely uneasy. The biggest threat to a democracy is the government itself. So if nothing can stop it, then we are no longer live in a democracy, merely a soft tyranny bordering on a dictatorship. Shouldn't the NSA in the US and GCHQ in the UK be made accountable for their recent exploits on evading our privacy?

  • Famous Quote from the past

    "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither".

    Our elected leaders are to paranoid and it all comes from down south. We cant even trust the RCMP to do their jobs properly as everyday I watch the news where they show me they have committed some illegal, immoral or unethical action. The more power we give these people the worse our lives will become.

  • The government can hold too much power

    If you have surveillance in abundance, this will make people uneasy, and make them feel like the government is holding too much power. In the past, when England controlled the colonies, the colonies broke away and tried their best not to give the federal government too much power, like England did to them. This is bad because you are being controlled to much, and with government surveillance constantly watching you, you can feel uneasy and will not be good for the country.

  • No No No

    This gives the government too much power. If you think about it, the government knows everything you are doing. If you type in an address into your phone, the government knows. Do you really want the government to see everything you are doing. This could affect everything from your daily routine too bananas

  • We have amendments for a reason and too much power given.

    The fourth Amendment states that citizens of the United States have the right to privacy. The government using their surveillance on citizens is violating that Amendment. For the government to have surveillance on its citizens is obviously given way too much power and to have the Patriot Act and still abuse it. For people who think its a good idea because it prevents terrorist attacks and then wait what if you have been framed? What if your being convicted, or discriminated??? The only reason someone would ever wanna use surveillance on it's own citizens, allies, and of course enemies is because the government is paranoid. People think we are America home of the free.. Yeah well if your free would you be surveillanced or would you have privacy. Citizens of America are one step closer to being slaves of the government. People who think this is a good thing are clearly brainwashed or do not understand this at all. For those who think this is protecting you tell me... If they were protecting you by watching your every move, text, phone, etc do you even know cases out in the world as well as personal stories on the news of what government surveillance caused. One day its gonna be citizens against the government, and all you people who are all for government surveillanced are gonna be shocked wonder what the hell happened. My only wish that it doesn't happen.

  • Too Much Control

    They could wipe out every thing we know. The government could become god-like and force our very thinking to change. Just read 1984 in English class and realized how bad our world would turn out to be. I personally wouldn't feel safe at all. Being able to watch every one is an insane idea anyway. Even though it may stop crime and prevent catastrophic events from happening, what would it do to those of us who are good people. NO NO NO.

  • It's none of their business!

    It does not concern the government what I plan on doing for the week. They'll more likely receive useless information that they do not need. Instead of accusing EVERYONE of being a suspect, the government should focus on the area where the source of the problem is, that way they can actually find usefull information and hopefully catch the real suspects. This is an invasion of our privacy!

  • No no no

    No no no no no no no no no no no no government surveillance is an awful invasion of our privacy as americans and must be stopped, ever read to news debate.Org? You kinda should, there are so many reasons against it and so many different debates regarding this topic. Lets limit it to only 1 topic ;)
