You aren't going to get regular people worked up about this until the
government is spying on them personally. People will say dumb things like "haha
Obama doesn't trust the healthcare industry either!"
Then a year or two
later, it gets pointed at everyday users. People say things like "I have
nothing to hide!" then find out CISPA made it legal to arrest you for breaking
Facebook's EULA that says you don't have a right to your own pictures or
whatever crazy thing, and that the government now has proof you did it, and they
are bringing charges.
But seriously, why is this sucker not ALL OVER
the news? Most I know haven't even heard of the NSA before I told them about
I'm sorry, I ended up ranting a bunch without meaning to. I'm going to
have to set aside some time to contact my representative, I think... I don't
know what else I can do but educate the people I know about it and try to make
them less complacent.
