    "The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell."

    Thanks for the heads up but this is an important enough share to warrant the risk.

    FBI Consultant Showed Proof of Gov't Phone Spying Years Ago,

    Promoting the film "Eagle Eye," which according to IMDb shows how "technology of everyday life [is used] to track and control," LaBeouf told Leno that an FBI consultant for the movie said one in five phone calls made are recorded and logged.

    "And I laughed at him," LaBeouf said.

    "And then he played back a phone conversation I'd had two years prior to joining the picture," LaBouf continued.

    Both Leno and LaBeouf concluded it was "extremely creepy."

    Edward Snowden Moved Out Of Hawaii Home On May 1st

    WAIPAHU, Hawaii -- A Hawaii real estate agent says Edward Snowden and his girlfriend moved out of their home in a quiet neighborhood near Honolulu on May 1, leaving nothing behind.

    Century 21 real estate agent Kerri Jo Heim says Sunday that the owner of the house wanted the couple out so that the home could be sold.

    Heim says police came by on Wednesday to ask where the couple went. She told them she didn't know.

    Snowden is a 29-year-old contractor who says he's the source behind reports about the U.S. government's secret surveillance programs.

    The Guardian newspaper reported Sunday that he was working in a National Security Agency office in Hawaii. He left for Hong Kong on May 20 and has remained there since.

    I think they've used the raw data that they have access to in order to influence the political process. I think people have been coerced and blackmailed into voting certain ways. I think that's how they've passed Nationalized Health Care. I think that's why the Attorney General has not gone to prison for "Fast & Furious", and I think that even the Supreme Court has been subverted and corrupted by information that has been gathered by this and other programs.

    The entirety of the US government is corrupted and not legitimate, and the entire democratic process has been subverted. Given that we cannot rely even on the Supreme Court to restore the country back to a lawful, constitutional state, the only means left to the people is violent revolution, i.e. civil war. No other choice has been given, other than to submit to an illegitimate, unconstitutional tyranny. We can't just "vote" things back to the way they were. Without armed revolution, there is no other option; the situation is permanent. People have to decide if they are willing to spend the rest of their lives, and their children spend the rest of their lives, enslaved to this unconstitutional government, or if they are going to use violent means to restore the government to what it is supposed to be.

    And part two, is the question of when. Tomorrow? Next week? A year from now? 10 years from now? How many decades into the future are people willing to sit on their hands and wait for someone else to "do something".

    IMO the Supreme Court decision on health care was the proof of the death of the constitutional republic. It's gone and will remain dead forever unless and until something happens. The State has already integrated itself into the day-to-day lives of the citizens to the extent that no one is free of it's direct control, and all are dependent upon it for their day-to-day survival.

    Folks, that's called slavery. We are now slaves. And we shall continue to remain slaves. As Mark Levin says, it's a "soft tyranny", but that tyranny will become as hard as it needs to become in order to preserve the state as it is right now. The State will NEVER just give up it's power; it is going to have to be taken back, and by force. Snowden calls it "Turnkey Tyranny", meaning that the leaders may rotate in & out, but the boot on the neck of the American people will remain exactly the same.

    I am against this program, but your post makes me lol. We're now slaves because the healthcare system is changing? People are being blackmailed into voting for the next president? Don't you think we might have heard some reports of that if it actually happened...
