Letter: Speak out against government spying on its people

To the editor:

Are we really as free as we think? Please pay attention. The NSA, IRS, EPA, BATF, DHS, Common Core and others are monitoring every phone call, email, Tweet, posting and Internet search.

With regard to the emails, this is a clear violation of the Constitution of the United States. Our snail mail has been monitored since the 1930s. Bet you didn’t know that either, did you?

Politicians from both sides of the aisle are claiming it is needed to make us safe. Really? Why did we not stop the Fort Hood shootings? How about the Boston bombings? Why were the mass shootings not stopped if we had all this information?

The truth is with politically correct morons in the government, we cannot look for those who really are going to harm us.

In the Boston bombing case, Russia tried to warn us and the government could not see it.

Instead of looking at every ladies aid meeting at the corner church, why not ask your representatives to stop the government agencies looking at average, law-abiding people and target those who post violent and threatening messages for all to see?

Wake up, people! Satellites, drones and now electric monitoring are the norm unless we stand against it. Want to really be free? Then tell your legislators you have had enough with all the government intrusion.
