I dislike the attempt to frame this as a "libertarian" issue

It's not. It's an issue of the basic human right to privacy that we all agreed on when we were deciding what kind of country we wanted to be. There is outrage from the far left, the far right and everywhere in between.

It seems like they're trying to equate being against the NSA's broad overreach with being "libertarian", a term they often use as a euphemistic pejorative synonymous with "kook", "isolationist", "conspiracy theorist", and "truther".

Now is the time when we will see people's true colors. We are at the end game.
