For starters we have all lost the freedom to privacy. Cameras cover capital cities across the nation with facial recognition software is being used in the name of "homeland security." Secret internet hubs filter all information presented on the internet, and suspicious activity is monitored by government agencies. Satellite technology has the capabilities to listen in on every single phone call made, and these capabilities are activated with certain "trigger" words. Everyday citizens including family, friends, neighbors, and associates are joining government monitoring groups such as infragard and operation bright eyes to secretly spy on everyday citizens. All in the name of National Defense and the Patriot Act. Police now have the authority to search your house without you ever knowing if they "classify" you as a terror suspect for whatever reasons. We have all lost the right to privacy, and these are just the projects and technology that we are aware of. Imagine what they are using that is still classified. And I would put my money on the fact that they watch this site very closely. Perhaps you and I have been on their radar before. We won't really ever know, but the reality of the situation is very terrifying when you stop and think about it.
