ITAR is involved.
SO what you and your fellow Anti-2nd bedfellow Kali is suggesting, is that this is just to protect a company's unreleased product from being on the internet as public domain?
I guess we need more rules/laws governing IP, Patents, breaching of NDAs and corp espionage?

This is not just a US issue this is global in scale because if the US truly does dissolve into outright tyranny the world will also fall....country by country.
So why is the U.S scrambling to get this TPP approved? Because they are struggling to hold onto economic power.
The U.S Gov't don't want to be a tyrant, they want to be the tyrant.
And my statement regarding how this Govt lies continually.
It revolves around companies, but doesn't limit to companies.

I have to agree with Subtruth.
While in 'theory' we are suppose to be a republic.
We live under tyranny of the mob aka democracy.
Where mob might makes 'right'.
Where the 'collective' rights have usurped the individual rights.
The mob says guns are bad so the state infringes on the individual rights to keep, and bear arm.
Of course under the pretense of 'taking care of us'.

Your views are shared by millions who will also not be silenced or disarmed. You'd have to kill me and pray my firearm from my cold, dead hands first.
And I don't even have a firearm...!
TPTB are smarter than this.......They will create a mindset slowly over time using propaganda and fear and many will give up willingly. Pushing progressive ideals in schools and media to the younger generations will eventually pay off in a big way. Young people growing up today will have little or no issue with privacy invasions because that is what they are used too........See the trend now apply it to other constitutional rights.
I can prove what I am saying.......If you ask people if this is a democracy 99% will say.....YES. If you ask them if the rights of a group outweigh the rights of an individual 99% will say.....YES.
This failure of ideology only leads to domination by Oligarchies formed in it's wake.
