In reply to comment: Why would they? (see in situ)

The media... and large tends to excuse or ignore abuses by authoritarian government. They are more an arm of supporting the status quo of ever-increasing government intrusion than truly throwing the spotlight on corruption.

Can you please clarify: do you support the Stasi tactics of the state, with secret courts, secret laws, the use of a single warrant to go on a fishing expedition, surveilling millions of Americans who have done nothing to be under probable-cause suspicion? You seem to be minimizing the importance of a broader portion of the nation waking up to the extent and the details of this. Do you think Washington and Jefferson would have approved of all this?

I agree with Judge Nap -- Thomas Jefferson, in some place, is weeping.
