Targeting patriots?

I have no problem with the National Security Agency monitoring overseas phone calls. This is not unreasonable when you consider how it can protect our country.

What is unreasonable is the NSA's “2015 program” that monitors communications that never leave our country. Instead of stomping on the Constitution, how about being very selective about who is allowed to immigrate into our country?

Currently, politicians on both sides of the aisle are permitting an agenda that is aligning our country for a one-world government. So I must ask everyone: “Do you really believe that this large database will be used only to prevent terrorists? Or could it be used against true patriot groups that believe in U.S. sovereignty and the Constitution?”

Who knows, with a vote and a stroke of the pen, it could even be used to identify law-abiding gun owners.
