I am appalled and outraged that our government is collecting data about the telephone calls and Internet usage of American citizens.
And powerless. I feel powerless.
I feel like all the things my parents taught me and all the things I learned in school about the freedoms we enjoy in the United States are a lie.
I always believed that, as long as I was not doing something illegal, my activities were nobody’s business and would not be monitored or tracked.
We are a nation that needs a boogeyman. I remember when it was communism, but I’m not old enough to remember McCarthyism. Thank goodness we came to our senses as a nation and turned Joe McCarthy out on his ear.
Now our boogeyman is terrorism. Will we come to our senses this time?
