Many were hoping that once Barack Obama was out of office we would see less of this Big Brother surveillance nonsense, but instead it seems to be getting even worse.

Americans who still believe in the Constitution and the protections it offers are more in line with Classic Liberals than modern conservatives. Unfortunately, the word 'liberal' has been highjacked by leftists, Marxists, Socialists and Communists. It has not always been that way. Many of our founding fathers considered themselves to be Classic Liberals and the Constitution reflects many of those values.
