Poll: Most Americans ok with PRISM phone tracking

0. phoneArena 11 Jun 2013, 09:59 posted on

If the recent leak about the NSA's PRISM phone record tracking program had taken place in another era, Americans would be calling for the impeachment of every elected official involved; during the Watergate era, when we had a paranoid President in office, and U.S. citizens were wary of every pronouncement that came out of Washington D.C., this story would have had more of an edge to it...

"Wow, you are really in the dark...the gov't knew of the attack of Pearl Harbor well in advance...that fact is well documented."

This I agree with and it is documented. Its sad....but true.

Since you mentioned Orwell, you must watch this documentary called "Orwell Rolls in His Grave". It's on Netflix. The man was indeed a prophet...

Everyone who is okay with this should have a camera planted on their front lawn and followed around with another one until they wake up and realize it's never okay for privacy to be invaded, regardless of the reasoning.

And for this stopping terrorism, tell that to the people of Boston.

Ppl that before this was happening....didnt care or even wanted to know.

If this had never came out.....what would change? Are ppl gonna leave carriers, get offline, live in huts and shacks now totally off the grid?

What are all the ppl thats complaining gonna do? Everyone complaining have a choice....cancel your ISP service, cellphone service...

Who is still using MS, Google, Apple products, services and products, services from the other companies on the slides after the this news broke...

Exactly.

Well, we go into other countries because we want their resources, or their leader no longer plays 'the game' by our own rules. This has been happening for a very long time, and I am sick of it.

I see....everybody complaining .....probably are ok with torturing and water boarding to get info, right?

Rights being violated are fine...as long as its the enemy, right?

Hypocrites all around, I tell ya....

Great assumption that has absolutely no basis. Also, are you saying that you are OK with water boarding and torture and PRISM?

I've never been tortured or watered boarded and I never had Men in Black show up at my front door. I have nothing to worry about.

Is there anyone here or have we ever seen an article, story about someone mysteriously being hounded by the Feds for nothing?

Most times, ppl hounded by the Feds are doing something they shouldnt have been doing. I am fine with PRISM. I never been hounded by the Feds.

So because you personally have not been affected by it then it's OK? So if you haven't been affected by the tornado in Oklahoma or the hurricanes in New York or in Louisiana then it doesn't matter? And since you haven't been personally water boarded then it's ok for it to happen to other people? Sounds like a whole lot of childish selfishness going on.

It doesn't matter what I say or what I do on my personal time when I am connected to the Internet. As long as what I'm doing is lawful, and it wouldn't be considered an act of extremism, then I'll continue to live my life as I have always had. What difference would it have made to you if this info wasn't leaked and published by news sources? Knowledge is our greatest resource and sometimes, our greatest downfall.

Securing our safety is more important about worrying about aspects of our life the government isn't interested in.

I have seen the terrorist and it is the United Stated and the C.I.A. It is sad how the gov't and the media manipulate Americans into believing the fear, the terrorist hype. Our own gov't has done terrible things to its own citizens since the inception of the 'Federal' Reserve, the sinking of the Lusitiana, Pearl Harbor, Vietnam, JFK, RFK assassinations, 9/11, etc., just to justify a means to an end, to gain support for its own private agenda.
It is 'We the people' afterall, but, perhaps that was a game just to make us all feel we were actually building something special...idk.,
