The next election can’t come quick enough. Now, an intelligence official within the Bush Administration is trying to tell us we need to give up fundamental privacy such as anonymity. It’s high time we elect a government that is accountable, that actually answers to the people. Our privacy, our ability to walk through this world untracked is one of the things that makes America great. We need to protect liberty, even in the face of lessened security. Two ideas many seem to have forgotten include “Don’t Tread on Me,” and “Live Free or Die.”
I find it interesting that because some members of Generation Y have given up their privacy, that this official wants to take away mine. Isn’t that an individual choice?
