I hope this lawsuit succeeds. The federal government routinely violates the constitution without consequence.

Imagine the consequences if you decided to illegally spy on your neighbors, secretly using their computers’ webcams to take pictures of them (including nude photos), listening in on people’s phone calls, searching their emails and texts, etc.

You’d be called a creep. A criminal. You’d be put in jail.

Yet Democrats continue to give Obama money at fundraisers around the country, cheering him on.

Stop it. Tell Obama you won’t give him another dime until he stops his criminal activities.

I almost thought spcwt was being reasonable until he decided that it was all Obama's fault. The government has spied on American citizens for decades - remember J. Edgar Hoover's infamous tapping of Martin Luther King's bedroom and hotel rooms in the 1960's? But the electronic snooping went on steroids right after 9/11, during the Bush Administration. Only an ideologue with tunnel vision could somehow convince himself that it all started in 2009, or that it's any different with this president than it would have been with any other one.

I guess for people with Obama Derangement Syndrome nothing is wrong that isn't Obama's fault.

I never said spying started with Obama.

Learn to read. It might help you.

Or maybe not.

Give it up spcwt, stick to the subject and keep your hidden agenda out of it, you're not fooling anyone. I think we can all agree this kind of stuff has been going on for a long time, regardless of who is in office.

No hidden agenda.

The subject is Obama’s repeated violation of the constitution and federal law. When confronted by his illegal activities, he flippantly says, “So sue me.”

There’s not much Americans can do about this tyrant. We can’t vote him out. We tried that, but there’s too many people addicted to free Obama phones and other goodies.

But people can at least stop giving him money.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
