I think this shows how out of touch a lot of politicians are with the country. It seems like almost everyone is concerned that the government is spying on citizens too much- but not Jeb Bush. He wants to double down on NSA spying. I don't know who we thinks will be attracted to this, other than the most hard-core Republican hawks, but I think it's a bad strategy, or just being naive.

It is as if these politicians (Bush, Clinton, etc) are saying "We are going to do what we want. It doesn't matter what you think about us. You idiots will elect us anyway."

“There’s a place to find common ground between personal civil liberties and NSA doing its job,”


Nope.

By collecting everyone's data, you assume everyone is a criminal.

Jebedediah is using the term "civil liberties" ha, lol, lmao.

Just the same as Hillary claiming she doesn't know how a computer works.

Just going to leave this here. Video is from 2 years ago, covers what was known of NSA spying back then. Their capabilities are horrifying.

This man has zero charisma. I still say Hillary is the anointed one. Perhaps her coronation will truly show the proles that their vote really doesn't count and the whole thing is just a facade. Servers? She will skate as she always does. The Clintons are superb politicians, world class in every respect. Politicians and thats it. As far as being useful servants of the people...now way, they only serve themselves. Regarding the NSA, I say good morning to them and bid them all a wonderful day. I just assume they can read everything if they so desire. Why the hell they would want to read my stuff, would be beyond me? If they did so, they must be incredibly bored.

I don't think we, the American people who are the government, have given the NSA enough power to spy on Jeb Bush, and the rest of our political leaders.

As for our government spying on private citizens by pushing through legislation that the people and the supreme court have not agreed to I believe it needs to stop. I don't appreciate the 4th amendment being brushed aside.

I also believe that Edward Snowden should receive a partial pardon and slap on the wrist for divulging a little more than necessary. I think his time in Russia should count as time served, with no additional prison time.

I believe Edward Snowden will go down in history as a true American Constitutionalist Patriot. A patriot that our founding fathers would stand and applaud for his courage in the face of extreme adversity.

That's for sure. We need to have a watchdog group watching our politicians. There's enough criminals and traitors in their ranks.

I agree. I think any legislation which will affect a citizen's constitutional rights should always be placed on a ballot for the American public to vote on. We shouldn't be relying on our self serving representatives who are easily influenced by special interest groups. We certainly can't rely on them to uphold their oath to "to protect the constitution of the United States." They clearly haven't upheld their oath of office.

The Snowden's are the real patriots of this country. Obama ran on a platform of Transparency in government, yet has done nothing of the sort and has condemned Snowden just like his puppet masters.

Makes me wonder how much dirt the NSA already has on politicians. Maybe that's why so many politicians, Republicans and Democrats alike are so eager to roll over and give them even more power to spy on whoever they want.

It doesn't matter who we vote for I'm afraid. The 2000 election when Jebby was governor of Florida is strong evidence(in my humble opinion) that voting does not matter. They manipulate the polling data, they parade on the main stream media who they want to win, and if all else fails I do believe they will simply rig the election.

The US has been practicing this for decades and decades in South and Central America, don't be so naive to believe they won't do it in the 'homeland'.

With Bush saying this now, if he is elected he can claim increased domestic spying is the will of the electorate.
