NSA should be allowed to spy on us. In my opinion the only people that are against NSA spying on our phone calls are the ones that have something to hide. NSA has not done anything to a person that wasn't guilty. Them spying on our calls will only help us from, future terroristic acts. NSA has prevented many cyber attacks against USA from hackers MANY THAT ARE FROM AROUND THE WORLD! Hmm the other countries are mad at USA because we were spying on them and their phone calls? Its only to help us and to see if they are doing acts against the USA so they can be aware of them. I AM pretty sure they are spying on the USA equally.
The NSA should do whatever it takes to make sure our country is safe. We have plenty of domestic terrorist threats in our country. Our government should monitor those people and anyone who is seem as sympathetic to their cause. You cannot put a price on the security of our nation.
You have no privacy in America, so get used to it. Being the strongest country in the world is like being the toughest guy at a redneck bar. There's always someone there who wants to take you down. Except this country isn't a bar and we can't always see when the bad guys are coming for us. The NSA is needed to keep us safe.
The only reason you wouldn't want them to look at information is because you are hiding something or are worried that you may get caught doing something. There is truly no reason for them to not look at our information. Terrorists are tracked by this to save many lives and our country.
You may say that it's not helping but we don't know that. The Terrorist Surveillence Program was set up by President Bush after 9/11. "...The public just doesn't understand how difficult it is to prevent the next 9/11-even though there's no evidence publicly revealed so far that these measures have prevented the next 9/11." - The Washington Post
It is our life, they should not be able to spy on us without our permission seriously, it's so unfair, they didn't make the freaking world, they was just like well it ours now, so freaking stupid I don't like it.. We should at least be asked if they can spy on us or not, that violates our privacy...
Being against this tactic doesn't suggest that you have anything to hide...Only an uneducated individual who does not understand their 1st and 4th amendment right would claim that. Most people that are against the NSA spying on innocent American citizens through programs such as PRISM and CALEA are simply advocates of privacy and their rights as citizens. There is absolutely no need nor reasonable basis for collecting data on every citizen simply because a handfull may possibly have something to hide. It is also a massive unnecessary use of resources to fund data centers and collect/analyze data. Look at the bigger picture here and realize that though you may not be doing anything wrong and thus see programs such as these as being harmless, you are failing to acknowledge that it is only a tactic to test your willingness to voluntarily hand over your freedom. How long before the government works on the next freedom...And the next, until you are ultimately a slave? That statement is not a radical idea; These programs started in hardcore beginning in 2001, gained some leeway in 2006 and are now in full swing, all without the average person's knowledge. Look at recent events attempting to bar/restrict 2nd Amendment rights. This idea is overall just BAD! Wake up America, as a veteran, I beg you to wake up and stand up for your rights.
Instead, it should spy on the most "high risk" or most likely to enact terrorist or other criminal activities, and with a warrant to boot!. Spying upon the WHOLE populace is not just against the fundamentals of the bill of rights, but also is very innefficient. Those who trade freedom for security deserve neither of them!
NSA should be allowed to spy on us. In my opinion the only people that are against NSA spying on our phone calls are the ones that have something to hide. Also i think no We as Americans have the right to privacy, and learning that the NSA has been collecting information and metadata from citizens should be more disconcerting to citizens than it has been. So yes and no that is all think you for nothing ps hello peps love you kilem
They shouldn't spy on the us people doesn't mean that they won't. It''s the fear of terrorism. It's run by scum governments and wash ups that think the entire world is your enemy. The reason is fear it's simply the fact that people might kill someone over the internet is crap. It's government wanting control over everything that we own. On their own terms. We have to stand up and fight.
The NSA has been spying on us for longer than you people think. They have been spying on all of our information way before 9/11, but they still were not able to prevent it. So what is the point of the NSA spying on us if they were previously unable to prevent 9/11. They say they are spying on us to prevent another terrorism attack but they did not prevent 9/11 even when they were spying!!!!!!!!!
We as Americans have the right to privacy, and learning that the NSA has been collecting information and metadata from citizens should be more disconcerting to citizens than it has been. We are willing to give up our lives and our freedoms to a government that is supposed to be protecting us and ensuring our welfare.
No. I do not think the NSA should spy on us, because we as American citizens deserve our privacy. No one should be allowed to spy on our personal information without our consent, not even the government. Not to mention that is a blatant violation of our second amendment rights.
The Declaration of Independence was pretty clear on what to do it times when a government becomes so paranoid that it must record every shred of data about it's society. In the spirit of the Declaration of Independence, Snowden would be a hero for letting us know about the extent to which we have gone to "secure ourselves."
I do not believe that the NSA should spy on us. I believe the NSA's programs are a grave breach of privacy and their tactics do not benefit anyone. I find the NSA's powers to be over reaching and damaging to the countries reputation. The NSA's programs and policies hurt everyone involved and it shouldn't be allowed.
