All countries engage in surveillance, Chinese and Russians right at the top. Our programs could be tweaked, but not discontinued. It is too valuable. 7 years ago from a Republican in Addison, TX
If the NSA wasn't crossing the line so often and massively abusing its power in ways that far to greatly risk tyranny, we wouldn't even need to have this question asked now would we? But the NSA crossed many red lines it never should have and has done so hitting the ground running. the NSA should be disband and all equipment and data it has destroyed.
National security should be only about protecting our nations people. Recording all of its civilians data from using any technology is a complete deviation form that with far too much of it potentially able to be used for things that have nothing to do with security from a foreign attack. Way too much power with a much to far reaching potential of abuse. It would be better to build structures out of harder better armored material with buffer zones so see an attack coming verses trying to "secure" our nation via a means that intrudes on our citizens privacy to this extent.
Ironically, the method of building up better armored structures and land distance based buffer zones would have easily been do-able in decades past long before over baring, overly strict, overly costly regulations and inflation's as well as taxation's that exist now. 7 years ago from a Libertarian in Huntsville, TX
Should be a covert needs basis activity based on threats to national security and interests not specific to terrorism and certainly not swayed by reputation. 7 years ago from a Republican in Campestre Ju·rez, TX
When a risk is evident, yes, but without risk it is kind of getting up in their business without provocation and may cause further issues/risks on home ground. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Dallas, TX
Spying is a necessary evil. But when you spy on your own population, you become a despot. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, but this also applies within our nation. 7 years ago from a Republican in Waring, TX
Minimal surveillance on allies. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Veribest, TX
Yes, but all spying must be legally done by the US and not by multinational, foreign and US corporations. In addition, the US will take full responsibility if it is caught violating any international or foreign laws. 7 years ago from a Democrat in The Colony, TX
Yes, but it needs to be done diplomatically, and not stupidly. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Floresville, TX
No, rely on cooperation with allies to gather pertinent intel from within their borders. If they can't be trusted, they shouldn't be an ally. 7 years ago from a Republican in Plano, TX
If you think our allies are not spying on us, you are living in a dream land. 7 years ago from a Republican in Aubrey, TX
No, the NSA should not spy on anyone without reason. 7 years ago from a Republican in Hawley, TX
No, NSA needs to ask it's allies for permission to carry out surveillance. 7 years ago from a Green in Sunland Park, TX
Yes, but with strict limitations on the types and locations of surveillance that may be used. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Garland, TX
Yes, but quit getting caught!. 7 years ago from a Democrat in New Braunfels, TX
No, we should not be surveilling anyone and we should sever all ties and become neutral. 7 years ago from a Libertarian in Richardson, TX
We should make every effort to treat our allies with respect and consideration while also working with them for our mutual protection. On the other hand, we do need some information about what is going on along the paths of terror to our Country. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Pflugerville, TX
Yes, but with more thought to its impact on diplomatic efforts. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Dallas, TX
Yes but with multiple levels of non-affiliated oversight. Data should be fire-walled to not allow individual data and conversations to be viewed without accountability. 8 years ago from a Republican in Austin, TX
