So why would the FBI being able to 'snoop' around in suspect criminals and terrorists email/facebook/twitter/google accounts endanger your free
speech? I'm not sure they're really that interested what the average chap on the street is # tagging about or who he 'likes'.
Thw truth is they just aren't interested.
The only reason they want this is to make what they;re already doing that little bit easier to do.
If you think you're likely a person of interest i can see why this would worry you but for someone who just sits back and obeys the rules we all have
to live by for society to work it's just a shrug of the shoulders and a "so what".
For what it's worth I think it would be the people with the power who would have the most to lose from this, I really don't see how it would
compromise the freedom of speech of the average man on the street such as you or I.
you are programmed by the matrix,
let me unplug you,
the NDAA was designed for terrorists in forign lands,
but a group of american activists and journalists went to court to block it,
they said (and the court agreed) that this law would "chill" free speach
because it could be used against anyone who disagreed with the govenment,
and if it passed people would "self sensor" to avoid risk of retribution,
what you suggest as "i am doing nothing wrong"
is like a public toilet with clear see through walls,
you aint doing nothing wrong but im sure you dont want everyone watching you crap
would you criticise the govenment if you knew they could read it?
bye bye free speach
