Yes, we all know they have been watching for years, we get that. The differences are warrants for certain private info and info that is gathered to be used against their political enemies. You are familiar with free speech I take it. In a nation of 300+ million, no doubt we will have some different views on things but when you seek to use info gathered for other purposes as a weapon to stifle strong opposing views....that's a problem. Or maybe you don't see it as a problem, I dunno, many don't.
