Well First off for some odd reason people think the NSA began spying with the 'Patriot Act'.

The reality is that leaves quite a hell of a lot of American history out.

Working back from the Patriot Act was the Clinton Era Omnibus Counter terrorism Act of the 1990's.

They did 'write' the PA rather quickly. So when people say it was written before 9-11. Well it was.

Because there were already two existing incarnations with the FISA Act of the Carter administration.

Even goes back further to when the cold war began with 'Echelon'.

But then again going back further to the era of J Edgar, and what library books one checked out.

But it even goes back even further to Ma Bell. With telphone monitoring.

Goes back even further as to the real reason the post office was created.

The US government has been spying on us for a very LONG, LONG time.

From anarchists,to fascists, to communists. to the latest 'terrorists'.

The only thing that changes is the medium used to do it.

And the 'newest' forms is social media . Facebook,Twitter. Google. and the 'Affordable' Care Act, and it's 'data' hub.

The Federal Data Services Hub (Hub), a component of the health insurance exchanges created by Obamacare, connects seven different government agencies and establish new access points to the sensitive personal information of the American public.

Banking,Voting,health records. your internet usage, your phone calls.

They KNOW everything there is to know about us.

I think you aught to be bought up to speed. At this very moment UK agencies are running (inside the US) the surveillance on US citizens, as I said before using US equipment. By the some token US agencies are now running surveillance in the UK ( at Menwith Hills) and in Australia at Pine Gap ( which incidentally pulls in the far east surveillance as well.
Recording, yes, but only if they want to keep anything. The surveillance they are running now is live and proactive.
