    Apparently, if you're a Democrat or a Republican, your position on NSA spying is highly dependent on who is the President.

    Both Democrats and Republicans look bad in their own unique ways: Democrats seem to be most likely to change their opinion based on who is in power. Republicans, while also fickle, are just flat-out more likely to support the government spying on your personal life.

    Hopefully there will come a day when the partisans realize that they are supporting the same team and that the team is working against them.

    Notice that >50% of the population supports the NSA spying regardless of which party is in power. So the spying will continue for as long as we keep our current political system.

    The Dems were anti war until Obama took office. The 'conservatives' didn't turn fiscally conservative until Bush left. Just a vicious cycle of stupidity due to a zombified mental state.

    While warrantless wiretapping was going on in 2006, there was at least the presumption that probable cause was being applied.

    I have less and less reason to trust the political system each day.
