If Donald Trump is so concerned about Obama wire tapping his phone lines, then why hasn't he put to an end the mechanism available to the government from doing it again?
In a recent interview of Edward Snowden (By Jeremy Scahill), he explained the issue in his usual candor...
"If Donald Trump wants to take this seriously, right, he needs to fix the problem that everyone in America’s communications are being collected right now without a warrant, and then going into the bucket. And they’re protected by very lax internal policy regulations, right? And this simply is not enough. If he’s worried about the fact that somebody could have been wiretapping Trump Tower, that this could have happened without a warrant, or even with a warrant, right, the problem is not, oh, you know, poor Donald Trump. You’re the president, right? You should be asking questions about, 'Why was this possible in the first place, and why haven’t I fixed it?'"

People should be outraged that their government spies on them and records everything they say and do on a daily basis.
Liberty has eroded in the west and there is only a shadow of a free market left. Our money is centrally controlled and manipulated by private banks, half of everyone's wealth is stolen through taxation, every letter we write is being recorded, our phone calls are recorded, even Mark Zuckerberg puts tape over the camera on his laptop in fear of big brother spying on him.
Not until people start waking up to the realization that voting every 4 years won't fix their problems, they will hopefully realize they need to start fixing their own problems and that usually starts by detaching from the establishments way of doing things.
This includes getting out of the stock market and our government manipulated currencies, storing wealth in crypto currencies and even gold, homeschooling our children, ease up on the antibiotics and educate ourselves about natural solutions. And ultimately learn as much as you can. Unschool yourself.
Becoming an entrepreneur is generally the best thing employees can do for themselves. It firstly allows you to deduct from your income, expenses that you otherwise couldn't have done and it allows you to be your own boss and even improve other peoples lives by providing jobs that didn't exist without you.
If you are still an employee you need to do yourself a favor and read "Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant" by Robert Kiyosaki. It will help you get yourself out of the rat race.
