Americans need to wake up and realize that our rights are being taken away by a corrupt government. President Obama assured us years back that his administration would respect the US Constitution but today we find out that the CIA has tools that violate our privacy and we would never know it. (See WikiLeaks Vault 7)
Senator Obama promised in a Woodrow Wilson International Center, Council on Foreign Relations speech on August 1, 2007 that:
His administration would not “spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime, ”
“I will provide our intelligence and law enforcement agencies with the tools they need to track and take out the terrorists without undermining our Constitution and our freedom.
“That means no more illegal wiretapping of American citizens. No more national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime. No more tracking citizens who do nothing more than protest a misguided war. No more ignoring the law when it is inconvenient. That is not who we are.
Obama also declared that “the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers”:
“We will again set an example for the world that the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers, and that justice is not arbitrary.”1
We Americans must all rise up and tell our government to stop and then only elect candidates who respect the law.
