Administration Seeks Easy Access To Americans’ Private Online Communications

There are threats to our freedom, in the past, now and sadly forever in the future, but this dose not give any administration the right to violate individual freedoms.

The Obama administration is seeking to expand the government’s ability to conduct invasive surveillance online, according to a report in The New York Times today. According to the report, the administration is expected to submit legislation to Congress early next year that would mandate that all online communications services use technologies that would make it easier for the government to collect private communications and decode encrypted messages that Americans send over texting platforms, BlackBerries, social networking sites and other “peer to peer” communications software.(http://goo.gl/pitK)

My personal feelings are best echoed by FDR:
The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.
– Franklin Delano Roosevelt
