President Obama defends PRISM as a necessary measure to stop terrorism and to save your life: “[PRISM] helps us prevent terrorist attacks.” ~ RYOT
The pro-PRISM propaganda is really amping up. Many leftists have already criticized Obama over PRISM but I suspect they’ll soon be whipped back into line.
Perhaps the biggest lie told so far is that its primary purpose is to protect against terrorism. If you believe that, I have some oceanfront property in Nebraska I’d like to sell you…
Despite the occasional domestic terrorist attack, most terrorists come from the Third World. In fact, the vast majority of terrorists in the USA in the past couple decades have either been legal or illegal immigrants into the USA. In short, terrorism is just as much an immigration issue as a national security issue, if not more so.
This is anarcho-tyranny in action. Import a bunch of Third World terrorists into the USA and then spend billions of dollars to try to stop them, all the while infringing upon the liberties of the native-born population.
And immigration enforcement, compared to the anarcho-tyranny immigration brings, is actually cheap, when one considers the trillions of dollars that Third World immigrants cost the USA – in education, welfare, hospital visits, etc. Just one small example: The state of Texas now spends over $1 billion annually on ESL (English-Second-Language courses) alone!
