    Our federal government currently operates far outside of the bounds of the law. The U.S. Constitution has been completely and totally shredded. The global surveillance (including all U.S. citizens) far exceeds anything in George Orwell's 1984. The NSA stockpiles known vulnerabilities, doesn't report them to the vendors for patching, and then is so irresponsible and ignorant, they allow their entire stockpile of cyber-weapons to fall into the hands of hostile states.

    So the question becomes - how do we stop this madness? Is it even possible at this point? The American people sent the ultimate "fuck you" to the federal government in the form of President Trump, but this issue doesn't even appear to be remotely on his radar. Even if it was, he's given no indication that he's interested in stopping it (Barack Insane Obama campaigned on shutting it down and instead - expanded it exponentially).

    Whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, Congress, the ACLU, etc. - all seem to be incapable of stopping it. At best, they've simply educated the American people (which is nothing to sneeze at of course - but doesn't really matter if it doesn't result in the egregious activity being corrected).

    Trump is going to expedite our loss of control over the internet, not fight against it.

    Try the Tim McVeigh approach. It sounds like you are at least in principle sympathetic with his views.

    Naturally the liberals' first thought is violence.

    Leave it to a LWNJ to suggest violence.

    Liberals make the most progress during times of crisis and suffering. The rest of the time it's a slow process of indoctrinating our children via their stranglehold on our educational system and our news media. Trump is off to a good start by exposing CNN and MSNBC but he has a long way to go. And eliminating voter fraud is an absolute MUST if we want to have our country back.
