Are we losing our privacy?

Is there anyone interested in discussing how to preserve our privacies?

Refer to "Are you being investigated?" thread for more info on how they are data mining your information.

What can be done to protect ourselves?

I tell you what, my husband and I just had a rude awakening when the IRS just decided to keep track of my husband income because last year we came even in the taxes after 9 years of paying over.

That was a very rude awakening, how dare they.

When the Patriot Act was implemented, we lost a lot of financial privacy. However, I'm beginning to learn there are ways of getting them back, here is one. Use a corporation from Nevada.

Did you know that the State of Nevada has not signed an agreement with the IRS!

Outside quote from;

"Because Nevada has no state tax, and because Nevada does not keep much information on their corporations, it has steadfastly refused IRS requests for reciprocity. Other states freely exchange all of the information they have on every resident and corporation but Nevada has no reciprocity arrangement with the IRS."

The patriot act did remove alot of privacy from Americans. Being a Canadian I am not directly affected by this, but I can take a look at it from a neutral perspective. These scare tactics have been removing the right of the individual since 9/11, and will continue to do so if we stay on this road.

The government wire tapping its people and ignoring the FISA agreement has amazed me. Illegal acts have been carried out, been admitted to but yet not held accountable. We wish for transparency in our governments, but expect accountability.

So I would agree 100% that we the individual are losing are privacy.
