I think you will find the people that agree are more likey to be the ones that voted for the current administration. I haven't seen a lot of Democrats leading the charge to stop this abuse of power. Barring that, your salivating divisive rhetoric is shameful. Every American from all political leanings should unite to resist this attack of our constitutional rights. I will stand with any man or woman, without regard for their politics, to stop this totalitarian policy. That includes you.

re: NSA Surveillance: IT Pro Survey Says What?
Respondent #231 hit the nail on the head. There is a need for law enforcement to obtain some data as a matter of public security, but I would agree that there needs to be a legitimate reason for that access. Collecting a treasure trove of information about citizens -- even those who are not a threat -- does violate constitutional rights, and the laws must be adjusted so as to not allow the government to overstep its boundaries in the name of security. More oversight is definitely needed.

56% of the people agree? That is the same 56% that also are in favor of banning gay marriage, banning abortion (because it kills life), extending the death penalty to petty crimes, having a right-wing extremist Republican as president, and making gun ownership mandatory. Who did the Washington Post ask? The same 1,001 cleverly selected people to get a good headline? Or is the majority of people really that dumb and uninformed?
Thankfully, folks in IT see it differently and hopefully they have the guts to object when ordered to provide data to organizations outside of the company. If data doesn't even leave the premises in the first place we do not need heroes like Snowden.

Interesting. And this is very good point: "And not all questions are created equal."

re: NSA Surveillance: IT Pro Survey Says What?
Very good point. Let knowledgeable people in on the operational detail of NSA systems and see what critique, what feedback they can give us. Law enforcement without public watchfulness tends to go outsde the law. With public watchfulness, it's much more accountable. I also agree the chances of being killed in a terrorist act are infinitesimal. On the other hand, note the difference in the second attack on the World Trade Center from the first, where the intent of setting off a van loaded with conventional explosives in the parking garage was to topple the building.The first try failed, What followed was plan B. Soon we'll be at plan C, I regret the circumstance, but at some point, we will want to know everything we can about the plan. Charlie Babcock
