Mitchel Townsend of Winlock wrote this excellent letter published in The Olympian:
“Every other day we hear new revelations about our government collecting and sorting through almost every aspect of our lives. The NSA Intelligence Director James Clapper has himself has been caught in several untruths in sworn testimony before Congress.
The collection of our personal and professional data has reached a point where we have literally been robbed of any privacy. When you add in the requirements of Obamacare, the theft is absolute. The Constitution of the United States of America clearly delineates the protections that we have been afforded regarding privacy, liberty and protection from unwarranted and illegal search and seizure.
I have a question: Is this what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our future? We are at an Orwellian crossroad in this nation. We either accept the loss of our liberty and freedom for a false sense of security or we roll back the unconstitutional actions of our government and bring them back under the oversight and management of their employers, we the people.“
