There is no difference between the two factions of the ruling party. They share the same statist goals and present We the People with the same talking points. Any mere citizen working for the government who exercises his First Amendment right exposing the ruling elite's clear violation of the Fourth Amendment that the ruling elite don't want public is considered by the ruling statist party (be they either the Republican or Democrat factions) a traitor.
On Monday the Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said "I don't look at this as being a whistle-blower. I think it's an act of treason."
Tuesday this week on ABC's Good Morning America, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) labeled Edward Snowden, the contractor who leaked details of the National Security Agency's surveillance programs, a "traitor." Claiming that exposing the government's clear violations of the Fourth Amendment "puts Americans at risk. It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are, and it's a giant violation of the law."
The Constitution was written not to limit the people, but to limit the government. Obama infamously lamented that the problem with the Constitution is it made it hard to get things done. Our elected officials including Boehner and Feinstein took an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States. Their actions are representative of the unified ruling party, that is displayed as a false choice of the Democrats and Republicans. Rather than uphold their oath, they have been exposed for not only failing to protect the Constitution but in truth grossly violating it, and thus destroying what little trust remained of the government. The ruling elite declare that because the consequences of knowing that the government is in clear violation of the rights of We the People and ignoring the restriction placed upon the government by the people, hurts the ability of the government to "get things done," that exposing such truth is treasonous.
Treason is now upsetting and exposing the ruling elite, not protecting the constitution and country from tyrannical usurpers taking powers that they clearly constitutionally prohibited from having. The idea that comes from on high, from Republicans like Marco Rubio, is that your liberty and freedom are secondary to "security" and that your right to be secure in your persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, in this day and age is not as important as the Ruling Elites desire to know what everybody is doing and to use that information to protect the ruling elite.
It's simple the government is prohibited from looking at your mail (email, snail mail, text messages, etc.) unless they have an impartial judge issue a Warrant, and no judge shall issue such Warrant but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Fishing for crimes by monitoring all communications, email, tweets, etc. to fish for violations of the law is specifically prohibited.
They have been exposed; the ruling elite are trying to tell us that exposing their abuses of power is treason. There is no difference in the ruling party's factions, Republican or Democrat. Any differences they have are inconsequential, when there is a real threat to their regime they circle the wagons and put out the same talking points and attack the actions of We the People. It is clear that both major political parties no longer represent the people, but the ruling elite. Their actions are treasonous, but then maybe electing them was equally as evil. I'll go so far as to say any future vote for either the Republicans or Democrats should be considered treason against your fellow citizen. This includes voting for Rand Paul and other so called "defenders of liberty" in the Republican Party. Any vote for a Democrat or Republican is a vote against the Fourth Amendment, and a vote for tyranny - PERIOD!
The one thing Obama and the Republican Party is right on, you can have total security if you aren't willing to give up your rights. The choice is yours; do you want a secure tyranny or dangerous freedom?
