Everyone talked about how this could/would happen when the Patriot Act was introduced..
Just use code words. My family has been doing it for years. The volume of email traffic is so much that they would have to use programs that key in on certain words or phrases. They would then need a human to cipher thru all the garbage.
“Everyone talked about how this could/would happen when the Patriot Act was introduced.”
Not quite everyone. Republican statists assured everyone that it couldn’t happen here.
Both parties are accomplices in the embezzlement of American liberty.
I think it goes back to the Antiterrorism Act of 1993, the bill that patriot is based on. Many of the problems with teh Republican-passed Patriot Act were in the Democrat-passed AT Act 93, but you know how things get reported.
