    I think we are better off with enemies spying on us from thousands of miles away rathyer than to have thousands of Federalis spying on us right here at home.

    The FISA courts have never been more than a thin fig leaf covering Federali abuse.

    We should have never had these courts in the first place, but "small government" conservatives were big cheerleaders of them because of "MOOOOOSLIMS!!!"

    What's the alternative if FISA Courts are eliminated? Do we allow indiscriminate surveillance of American citizens on American soil, with no restriction or limit? Or no surveillance at all? Sure, let's allow the domestic terrorists, crooks, and bad guys to do their will without any attempt to prevent innocent lives being lost.

    Begging the question isn't an argument.

    Yea. Shut them down. The left is too corrupt and dishonorable to have such power.

    Yeah, but if you're going to get rid of the FISA Courts then don't you think you oughta have some idea of how to handle domestic surveillance of American citizens on American soil? It's easy to say let's get rid of the FISA Courts, FBI, ICE, IRS, etc., but if you're going to advocate for that then I think you should have a plan for what to do after they're gone. Would we be better off without the FISA Courts? How?

    Government officials cannot be trusted with this power. It must be eliminated.

    They approve over 90% of the applications for warrants, so they are basically a rubber stamp.

    The fact the corrupt Obama cabal got all these warrants based on such a flimsy basis exposes the fact they need to be shut down.
