    It amazes me sometimes who often I hear the argument that if I am not doing anything wrong I have nothing to worry about. The government can slap a GPS tracker on my car, listen in on my phone calls, watch me as I eat out, and keep track of the books I read, and it won't make a difference unless I am doing something wrong. As if all of that was not bad enough, they can even take pictures of me through my clothes, but I do not have to worry, because the pictures are never stored or transferred. (Unless they do.)

    What next? Trucks that can drive around on the streets and look at people through their clothes and the walls of their house?

    I don't have to worry though, because I can trust the government. And the only people that have anything to hide are the people who are doing something wrong.
