Shared Secrets - The NSA Knows More Than They Should

Lovers of freedom know that a limited government is the only way to achieve it. Limiting our government in the modern age means also limiting how it uses our personal data.  If you want to keep a secret, don't tell anyone. The only way to be sure data is not used improperly is not to allow them to collect it.

Why NSA’s “Metadata” Collection Should Disturb You

There is much confusion about the NSA’s secret surveillance program Prism. It doesn’t record the content of all of our private phone and other digital communications.

By its own admission, the federal government is collecting massive amounts of ‘metadata’ on every single American.

“100% Security”: Obama’s Cradle-to-Grave Surveillance

At a congressional hearing in March, Senator Ron Wyden asked the question that a leaked FISC order answered weeks ago. “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” “No sir,” replied James Clapper, the NSA’s Director of National Intelligence. “Not wittingly.”

NSA Story Disrupting Left-Right Divide

As a kid, I had a bookcase devoted to 24 leather-bound tomes containing “the Sum of Human Knowledge.” Whenever I had to do a school report, from aardvarks to Zanzibar, I would pull out the correct volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica and take notes. (It was tougher to report on Krakatoa and Martin Luther since my cousins’ Irish Setter ate K-L. [Remind me to tell you about the time he chewed through a wall.])

Despite Outcry, NSA Spy Program Will Continue

This weekend Edward Snowden, a low-level employee who worked for a major defense contractor, came out to the press and acknowledged that he was the source of the leaks behind the National Security Administration's controversial spy program. The negative reaction to these revelations of the past week have been swift and strong from average Americans, some elected officials, and tech companies who have been named as participants in the NSA's data gathering scheme.

Unshackling Cellphones: Freeing Digital Consumers from Government Regulation

Everyone should have the right to unlock their legally owned phones in the Digital–Age yet  government policy once again is unnecessarily limiting consumer choice. In 1998, Congress passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which outlawed the sale or creation of software for circumventing anti-piracy locks on digital devices, even if they comply with copyright law.
