We pay for our computers, smart phones and other Internet-dependent devices. We pay providers, monthly, to be able to use these devices to communicate with others, and we are taxed on those provider services, often at the local, state and federal level … often excessively.

None of the money we spend on communications – especially our tax dollars – should unjustly enrich corporations while completely depriving us of any reasonable expectation of privacy.

Electronic surveillance is necessary, but it necessary only to the extent of picking up on specific words, and it must be conducted by government employees, not corporate contractors.

The harmless voice data, emails, etc., that have been harvested for purposes of oppression must be dumped.

Tomorrow would be fine.

Please remember this isn’t the first round in the battle …
