The NSA like the IRS and 90%+ of government agencies are out-of-control! You call having people's email, text, phone calls listened in on "protecting America"? Protecting America starts with the First Amendment and should be followed up immediately with the Second Amendment. The government doesn't and shouldn't have the right to intrude in any American's personal life. What made you think that those (like you in DC) should have ever-expanding and ever-increasing monitoring and control over what should be free people?
