    Wow, a great article and it is frightening. However, how many voting americans are actually following this crisis of trust? I am afraid when compared to the vast majority, there are just a few of us. Heck, how many folks can name our Vice President never mind all the Supreme Court Justices? Will there be change in American society as it relates to this issue. Probably not as most are busy with everyday life. it will take a real traumatic event championed by the mainstream media to effect any change. We are becoming accoustomed to surveillance and most are not even aware that it is going on. For most of the Senior Citizens, dealing with computer technology is beyond there grasp. If they don’t understand the issue, then how can we expect them to discuss it and vote against those that enhance surveillance laws. We have a government with Checks and balances. However, when all are sworn to secrecy there are few checks and the balance is often skewed. It is a slippery slope and I am afraid that there is just not enough of us concerned enough and fearless enough to publically speak out against this kind of government intrusuon and eventual control of our lives.
