what I am thinking. We all need to upgrade our courage and
integrity. The NSA, et.al. have destroyed the integrity of the
internet and our communications systems. It is wrong for us to
accept this. My recommendation is that every citizen should
from this point forward refrain from purchasing any additional
hardware or software from any company having to do with
communications until we fix this unconstitutional fraud and
of the companies that we use have betrayed us. Apple and
Microsoft, for example, have many billions of dollars in
their coffers and yet they donít have enough honor and
patriotism to spend some of that money to hire lawyers to
challenge the legality of having to provide the NSA with
secret back-door access to our information without a court
order as the Constitution requires.
donít know which companies have provided the NSA with back
door access to our computers or phones. I feel sort of sick
now every time I get a message from a software company that
wants me to update their program because I donít know if
they are trying to protect my security and privacy or only
updating the NSAís ability to hack my computer. How can I trust
any of them. All of them have betrayed us. They should have
been leading the charge to protect our security, rights, and
are all the Snowden(s) in the country who know how to read the
Constitution? Why are we accepting this treason without a
say, take this message that I am writing, expand on it if you
want to, and send it to everyone you know and ask them not to
buy or download anything else from any company that could
possibly be part of our communications systems, unless they
can certify that they have not acquiesced to improper,
unconstitutional, illegal, immoral, or unworthy activities
requested by anyone, including and most particularly the US
Government. That is the least we can and should do.
not asking anyone to sacrifice their income or well-being.
Iím just suggesting that if you can put off your
purchase, with perhaps a minor amount of inconvenience, itís
worth the effort in order to preserve our freedoms and
is not I who am asking you to muck up the system; it is
our government that is mucking up the systemÖ and if we have
any courage or sense left, we will not pay, support, or allow
these cowardly, treasonous people to perfect the NSAís
ability to cheat us out of our rights and freedoms because
they are too afraid to defend the Constitution and stand up
for what is right.
of us has a role to play, as citizens, in standing up for our
own rights and freedoms.
You may think that since you donít care about
politics enough to talk or write about or complain about
whatís going on that you are safe and have nothing to worry
about from the NSA or other agency.
But thatís just not true.
Our elected representatives, judges, lawyers, teachers,
people in businessÖ anyoneÖ can be blackmailed or
otherwise cheated by those who secretly acquire personal
information on citizens who are in a position to make
decisions that affect all of us, including legislation, court
cases, jury decisions, zoning laws, contracts, any kind of
political initiative, etc.
Everyoneís security and future can be compromised by
people who are able to gain unfair advantage over other
peopleÖ and one way they are trying to do that is to
secretly acquire private information they have no right to
know. If we
allow them to do this, our security and freedoms are doomed
even if we are not the ones who have information that is
secretly being stolen.
you believe in freedom, stand up for our rights.
Do not support those who have betrayed our trust and
lack the courage or decency to stand up for us and with
us. Do not buy
products from people who cannot certify that they have not
acquiesced to improper, unconstitutional, illegal, immoral, or
unworthy activities requested by anyone, including and most
particularly the US Government.
Our anti-virus software should be protecting us against
unlawful searches, not helping the government bypass our
attempts at protecting ourselves. This is one way -- and
maybe the only way -- to have our voices heard.
