So long as the government's listening, right? We're not suppose to be TOTALLY secure in our person, life, and papers, right? In a government "of, by, and for the people", I can only be as secure as my neighbor will allow me to be-- Sounds like freedom and liberty to me.

"Every man and woman should know that their conversations, correspondence, banking, and health records are open to government and private scrutiny at all times, and should act accordingly. Never put anything in an email that you wouldn;t want your mother to hear repeated from the witness stand." Kim L. Ground 1950 -- witness to the decline of American civil liberties
