If we pay good money for our telephone and if we pay for our Internet to our Internet Service Providers (ISP), what right has a government to tap our phones and to monitor our Internet connection? This must be done in collaboration with the ISPs. Moreover it puts the citizens in harms way, because there can be mole cells in the police and secret agencies abusing the big brother is watching you technology at their disposal and the big data for sex, drugs, money and power. Suppressing and working against individuals with an contract on their heads from the mafia, black mailing citizens, rich people and companies alike. And we still keep paying our ISP

If you got nothing to hide, you got nothing to worry.

They're "hunting" all of us down. That's what you get for non conformity- a world wide government can't function with people who are unwilling to submit mucking about.

We keep paying the ISP/cell providers because it's the only voice we have in this world.... but don't worry, they're shutting us up rapidly.

You don't have to pay for your internet.
You don't have to own a car.
You don't have to own a dog.
You do have to have insurance.

Now I am not a huge deep thinker, but off the top of my head...we pay for our roads and they monitor us there yes?, If you are doing the speed limit or there abouts and see a cop hiding in the bushes running radar does it piss you off? only that he didn't stop the guy who just passed you doing like 85...

I have nothing to hide so nothing to worry about. Love that feeling, its actually kinda new

We pay for our isps, internet, phone, cable, electric ECT. So that the companies can pay there employees, maintain a work envioroment, and upkeep there data lines, power poles, or what have you.

With that being said you don't have to have any of these services if you don't wish to pay for them, cancel them move to the country and live off the grid.

Probably because it costs. It's not free.

Precisely. Not only all of what you mentioned, but technology is exponentionally increasing in power and advancement.

with these constant upgrades comes constant costs to increase your technological needs to meet demands.

I'm not quite sure why the op is confused about this

Because if we didn't that would be socialism, which as every good American knows is just another word for slavery in a dystopian world where people have sex with animals.

How do you know that? in fact the OP is quite clever really, we pay to get spied on...the spying is official, typical in your face NWO operandi.

This post literally makes no sense to me..

The op knows the the Internet , like driving, like having a smart phone or anything similar is not a right and costs money to maintain infrastructure right?

You pay for your internet because the cables and WiFi don't build or repair themselves. Servers don't regenerate. Repairmen don't subsist on old routers.

You pay taxes for your internet because the government always gets its cut.

From what I've seen so far, I'm not sure we can make any assumptions about the OP's knowledge on this or any other subject.

I already did pay.
The US government and military used my tax dollars to create the internet in the first place. That is why the internet abides by the constitution and why it must remain free, open source, and controlled by the user not the provider.

Uh... wut? You do know the internet exists outside the USA, don't you?

So no, it's not true that 'the internet abides by the constitution.'

But you are missing the point in the OP, why should you pay for something that is spying on you? This not just bots who would pester you for something or other imaginery.

You said that in a sarcastic tone, I hope. That's what the sheeple usually say when they try to justify our ever-growing loss of privacy.
