“There is no legal justification for imparting secret knowledge about the NSA’s domestic surveillance activities only to the 20 members of the House Intelligence Committee.”

The Guardian: "Congressional oversight of the NSA is a joke. I should know, I’m in congress."

Rare congressional ass-kicker Alan Grayson touches on a deeply disturbing corruption of the American system of government: congressional representatives literally aren’t allowed to know what the NSA police state is doing, except for a tiny number of insiders who are carefully selected for their loyalty to that same police state!

Understand: 95% of the *law makers* are kept from knowing how the most important national security laws they pass are implemented (answer: illegally). This is not a legitimate system of government. Whether it was always a scam or recently became a scam, republican democracy in America is a scam: a funhouse charade of liberty and self-rule.

Americans: your claims to freedom under the law in current conditions are utterly fictional and frankly will not hold up to historical scrutiny. Please stop speaking of your freedom under the law in the present tense - “free” as a current quality of being a United States citizen. Start transitioning to some more accurate self-descriptions: "formerly free" or “at one time almost free” or “falsely promised freedom” or “free in spite of this regime” or "potentially one day free.
