How does everyone feel about the US Government storing our e-data without probable cause?


Recent revelations has confirmed that the US Government is storing user data form sites like Google, Facebook, Skype, and major communications companies. Those companies were ordered not to alert their customers and the Government can access it whenever they feel like. Do you think this is in violation of the Constitution that does not permit search and seizure without a warrant or at least probable cause? Are you ok with the government doing this?

    I would be more concern with what China, North Korea and even Russia are doing regarding internet data, rather than the U.S. and U.K.

    I do not understand your prior restraint argument. You can only collect data about what has been done. If that helps to avoid another 9/11 or similar attack, I am not going to get too worried. I wonder which group monitors Hub Pages.

    I see what your saying, but the government should not be storing the data "just in case" they need it.What about tracking phone calls? Those are not public
