Apparently a larger majority of Americans than not versus 41 percent in opposition, support NSA/Prism spying. Now I'm not one to normally buy into polls as 100 percent evident supporting a view. However let's discuss is? I find this very alarming, as their might be a possibly as to what Americans really feel. What do you say ATS!?

What is however ' excellent' for business as in the law and prison business, is people saying stupid things on line or texting and then getting arrested for 'saying something' as opposed to 'doing something'. Think how many people who just 'say' something can be locked away making a nice profit for private prisons.
Should people wake up to this, they really will limit their mobile phone use and 'facebook' will be a distant memory.
As to the majority of americans supporting surveillance, well, most people don't do 'thinking', the majority of americans were not asked in the first place, just a few representatives, and you can be pretty sure that anything said on line is mainly rubbish. Security services would be very much wasting their time with this nonsense but private prisons, they'd be rubbing their hands with glee. Nice little earner all those 'self convictions'.edit on 12-6-2013 by Elliot because: spelling
