Horrifically, GOP defends NSA’s illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens

Washington establishment wants to fool the American people with a false choice

As late as Thursday night, establishment Republican leaders are still eager to defend government surveillance of U.S. citizens even two years after Edward Snowden exposed illegal, domestic snooping of U.S. citizens. This establishment is using typical Washington double-talk, false choices and games to try to bamboozle Americans into accepting abuses and domestic spying by the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.

Government’s invasion of your privacy was a topic in Thursday’s two crowded debates among the 17 candidates for the Republican nomination for president. Looking beyond the focus on Donald Trump and “theatre of the absurd” reviews of “The Donald’s” Twitter messages, the national security of the country and how to provide for the common defense did eventually become a serious topic. There was strong condemnation all around of President Obama’s failed diplomacy with Iran and the role of China and Russia in hacking of U.S. government computers.

Except for Trump, ALL of those men took an oath and SWORE, with their hand on the Bible, to defend and uphold the Constitution.
Their word is, apparently, worthless.
It's beyond the time that Jefferson warned us --- PREDICTED --- about, which is spilling their blood all over the country.
If he was alive today, we would already be in the middle of another (necessary) revolution.
And Franklin would be openly laughing at those who crave the "security" these Nazi bozo's and Hitler wanna-be's keep promising, but cannot deliver, unless of course, we choose to live like Chinese citizens or North Korean citizens.
The Constitution is NOT the morning newspaper, where you pick out the parts you like and throw it out with the next day's trash.
Unless you are a modern day politician or one of their minion cheerleaders.
Keep cheering (your ever-growing subjugation).
When the water starts boiling, it's too late to jump out of the pot.
God save the USA.
