    As to some who are not protected and who are also spying and professional at feigning outrage?

      outrage or truly outraged?

      That's not how you decide policy.

      You decide policy according to what is best for your country, hopefully within a framework of morality that everyone understands, in this case that which is expressed in our founding documents. It can't always be done. But the worst excesses, the worst straying from the moral center can and should be reined in. There's no reason to be hoovering up all the data on everybody, unless you see it as some sort of odd job creation program.

      The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?

        does not automatically mean that it is.

        Seems to me that you are engaging in analytical theorizing that is removed from what actually happens in the real world.
