Do you honestly feel free living in a country with rampant police brutality, where free speech and expression has been compromised in the wake of the spying done by the NSA? The NSA knows where every american is and has been for a period none of us can be sure of.

I also ask you, do you feel comfortable knowing your smart phone is tracking your location, calls, texts, emails, possibly keystrokes, that you have no way of knowing what's truly going on with your phone because you have no real control of the device.

The American public needs to wake up and realize that we are living in a country controlled by elite corporations, holding all the wealth and a strong influence on the people of this country. We can dissent from them en masse by boycotting these tyrannical traitors.

The problem is the general public is brainwashed into believing whatever hogwash spews from the mouth of these drones. It's deep, in every aspect of american life. We have corporations, everywhere, controlling all the money, news, music, goods, etc. These corporations are the real heads of state, having a strangle-hold on all things "essential" to life. They care not for the individual, only for the greed in their pockets.
Though we may not be completely subdued by a rabid government, we are de-railing on a fast track to a style of ruling much more totalitarian in nature. When the majority of americans have devices, which store their location, and everything else; in a time when such information is relayed to government authorities, stored in databases, it needs to be crushed at the head.
WAKE UP PEOPLE THERE ARE NO REAL TERRORISTS EXPECT THE ONES IN OFFICE!! WE NEED TO PROTEST, AND FIGHT, BEFORE THEY STRIP US OF EVERY RIGHT WE HAVE AND START ROUNDING UP PEOPLE IN THE NIGHT FOR "TERRORISM". The general public seems to be perfectly content lapping these lies from the teat of the oppressor.

This goes deeper than the democrats and republicans, both have their flaws and both are corrupt corporate zombies. We need an entirely new set of Representatives.

We need millions of americans in every city protesting these actions! This is unacceptable and must cease now! Get the word out, of face book and other social networking sites, word of mouth, post flyers in your neighbourhood. Another step we can take is to boycott the elite corporations(learn to live without such extreme luxury), we are the ones who supply them with their power.
If even a small percentage of americans form protests and rebel in any way they can no matter how small, we may be able to shake the pot enough to see some change.
WAKE UP FROM YOUR SHATTERED AMERICAN DREAM!!!

What would FDR do about cell phones?

FDR is falsely maligned as a socialist or worse, but he
supported Big Business with tariff protection and antitrust
relaxation because they promised to do the best they could
with jobs jobs jobs, AND those higher taxes paid for the New Deal
