The US Senate has voted to approve the FAA Sunsets Extension Act of 2012, which will authorize warrantless surveillance of Americans for counter-terrorism purposes for another five years. The bill extends the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Amendments Act of 2008, which granted retroactive immunity for wiretaps and email monitoring under the Bush Administration and created a framework for future warrant-free surveillance as long as one party is located outside the US and terrorism is suspected.

Thank you Senators for signing you own arrest warrants. Spying on ALL Americans also means ALL politicians are being spied upon and when you go against TPTB you will lose your freedom also. When they come for you there will be no-one to protect you.
First they came for the terrorist - when none were found TPTB created terrorists to be found. Slowly but inexorably the list works its way down to you.
Funny thing is if the list started with you at the top all the terrorists would have been found!
