You people NEED to get out.
Forget your so called loyalties, you guys are dead men walking in the US.
This law looks like a double edged sword. It will give the US working power to get people (US citizens) in other countries without the need for a warrant.
You will be terminated by your government or locked up. Either way YOU lose. Get the **** out of that toilet NOW!!!

This is precisely the kind of thing I was expecting and also the reason I expatriated a few years ago.
I even threw my passport in the ocean.
If they keep being douchy I'm gonna go all the way and relinquish my citizenship totally.
No one in America ever believes me when I tell them I have more freedoms in this country than I did when I lived in the states.
Even as a second class citizen I can do whatever I wan so long as it's legal. Even the immigration office knows I am not paying my fees to their office.
You know what they told me?
"Just don't do anything that breaks the law and you will be fine." What a riot!

How is this not a violation of free speech?
Planning to do something where it is legal is NOT conspiracy.
Conspiracy involves planning to do something illegal, where it is illegal.
This is so absurd!!!
That's not even remotely true and to be honest, it is offensive, moronic garbage. I can tell you clearly don't have a clue what you're talking about

I'm confused. I don't really think we are in a police state. I've never been sent to a detention camp, I've never dealt with a cop unless I've been going 20 MPH over the speed limit - at that point I deserve it because I'm putting other people in danger, I've been caught with drugs and not punished at all, and who knows what else. I feel like people get fear-mongered into believing things are really bad. They connect together imaginary puzzle pieces and see a hypothetical 'big picture.' I do have to say, the DMV and having a driving license is inexcusable. I buy myself a car - so I should damn well drive it whenever I want!! In India barely anybody even has insurance. Ah well.
