Out of control: The recent revelation that the federal government is spying on its citizens’ email/phone calls/Facebook has stunned the nation. Edward Snowden, a NSA contract employee, exposed the spying. Elected federal congressman/senators approved this under the 2001 Patriot Act, signed by GOP President Bush. Our government has created a 40,000-employee National Security Administration-NSA. Under the guise of protecting us from terrorists, our government has become political terrorists.
