Ill also add, if you think the government doesnt already have access to all you do online you are crazy!



You know they do, especially if strange men in suits visit your house. :wink:

For the most part the people who are against it are not against it because they don't want the govt seeing what they are doing. They are against it because it's a step towards the govt getting too far into peoples personal lives.

The way I see it-- it's similar to why people want privacy with their gun purchases and gun ownership. Not because they're doing something illegal, right?



Despite the fact that your activity on the internet may be harmless, full of porn, or silly emails-- the government having access to that is what has people up in arms. And on that front, I agree.

I do agree on the first part there, too. Doesn't make it "right", though, just because they already do it. haha

But they can already do it, they know that right?
Internet isnt personal life.. i believe personal life to be actual life, not research on the web and forums and such..

This. The government needs to stop overstepping their bounds imo.

It more so sets a precedent. Our government is getting too big and too controlling.

they can do it but any info found illegally would not be permissible in a court of law.

Haha, well played.



I guess I do value my privacy a lot, which is why I understand both the internet and gun things, but don't really like 'em. Well, I mean, the gun thing I kinda like. But the internet... as far as I know... I cannot kill anyone with the magical use of my internet powers.




But... wait.... can I? *shifty eyes*

I think way more good could come out of it.



if my online privacy has to be limited because of freaks out there googling how to make bombs, and kid porn... and they can maybe stop things before they happen a little easier, then so be it.

Next step they'll try to control what sites we visit, they already do that in a way when they shut down our access to international file sharing sites like megaupload




Other countries have sites like facebook and others completely blocked because they want total control of their people.
