The Deep State is paying the price for their attacks on the Constitution.
They’ve violated American liberty for far too long.
But the Deep State just took a serious hit that they never saw coming.
The American public has finally turned against the Deep State, after 20 years of them shredding the Constitution and terrorizing their own citizens.
The Associated Press released a poll that shows that Americans are increasingly angry about illegal government surveillance and want it to end.
According to the report, “The poll found bipartisan concerns about the scope of surveillance and the expansive intelligence collection tools that U.S. authorities have at their disposal.”
The poll shows that only 14% of Americans support the NSA snooping on phone calls that Americans make to each other, and 17% support the NSA reading emails that Americans send each other.
The small minority of people who support these illegal programs include a number of Democrats.
The AP article quotes a Democrat from Whitehall, Pennsylvania, named Eric McWilliams, as saying, “As far as the surveillance is concerned, you gotta watch them – or else we’re gonna die.”
Democrats frequently value “security” over the Constitution, so hearing this attitude coming from a Democrat is not surprising.
The article continues, “The expansion in government eavesdropping powers over the last 20 years has coincided with a similar growth in surveillance technology across all corners of American society, including traffic cameras, smart TVs, and other devices that contribute to a near-universal sense of being watched.”
Many of these new spying powers that the government has seized, in violation of the Constitution, happened after the 9/11 attacks.
Americans were scared, and the government took advantage of their fear in order to grant themselves new powers that they never planned to relinquish.
In many ways, it was very similar to the current COVID response. People are scared of COVID, so the government has seized more power to make them feel more “safe.”
Likewise, after 9/11, people were scared of terrorism, so the government seized more power to make them feel “safe.”
And that power involved illegally spying on all American citizens.
Right now, Americans are waking up to the reality of what their government is doing to them.
“About two-thirds of Americans continue to be opposed to the possibility of warrantless U.S. government monitoring of telephone calls, emails, and text messages made within the U.S.”
However, there will inevitably be events in the future that make Americans scared once again.
When that happens, the Deep State will use those events to increase their spy powers, and other government powers, even more than they already have.
And it’s up to people who care about the Constitution to make sure that, even when everyone around them is in a panic, America doesn’t give up what’s left of its freedoms.
The Deep State thrives off fear. Their allies in the liberal media help them spread fear and panic amongst the public.
Fear of COVID and fear of terrorism are two sides of the same coin. They are both tools to convince Americans to give up their freedom.
It’s up to Constitution-loving Americans to say “no!” to any incursions on the Constitution – even when everyone around them is scared and panicking.
