I agree. I think John is

I agree. I think John is using the attention of the NSA matters to drive out all of the arguments. This allows him to make the statist argument(which is pretty funny.)

If you have been watching John throughout the years, you can tell when he has his "Devils Advocate" tone. And he has that very same tone every time he talks about government spying.
