what are you gonna do, report the police to the police? write a strongly worded letter to your MP?

2017-11-06 18:07:05 UTC  

The US has also done draconian steps toward it, remember the PATRIOT act?

2017-11-06 18:07:15 UTC  

Complain to the US lol

2017-11-06 18:07:21 UTC  

"free man of the land"

2017-11-06 18:07:26 UTC  

the patriot act is indefensible yea

2017-11-06 18:07:27 UTC  

yeah, I fucking hate that shit, and want it gone

2017-11-06 18:07:30 UTC  

the US isnt perfect

2017-11-06 18:07:58 UTC  

The patriot act is defensible

2017-11-06 18:08:01 UTC  

Overly broad maybe

2017-11-06 18:08:03 UTC  

Yet people gave these rights up with enthusiasm

2017-11-06 18:08:12 UTC  

We didn't approve of the Patriot act.

2017-11-06 18:08:31 UTC  

no, we have been trying to get rid of it since it was put in place

2017-11-06 18:08:36 UTC  

you vastly overestimate how much americans agree with the decisions of their politicians.

2017-11-06 18:08:46 UTC  

except gitmo still exists

2017-11-06 18:08:48 UTC  

Didn't over 50% of American disapproved the Patriot act when it was suggested?

2017-11-06 18:08:48 UTC  

How many congesmen were repleaced because of it?

2017-11-06 18:08:49 UTC  

we fucking hate them

2017-11-06 18:08:52 UTC  

The people anyway

2017-11-06 18:08:53 UTC  

The people anyway

2017-11-06 18:09:00 UTC  

It's almost like the people have little control over the american politics because *very few care*

2017-11-06 18:09:10 UTC  

What Franti said.

2017-11-06 18:09:11 UTC  

The people anyway

2017-11-06 18:09:28 UTC  

plenty care its just the corporations money is louder than our words

2017-11-06 18:09:28 UTC  

No one cares enough to go follow through with their voting habits on it

2017-11-06 18:09:41 UTC  

Ugh my signal is trash

2017-11-06 18:09:42 UTC  

If the people hated it they would have them voted out in a heathbeat

2017-11-06 18:09:53 UTC  

That is why the build up was released with Trump I think

2017-11-06 18:09:53 UTC  

Ugh my signal is trash

2017-11-06 18:10:02 UTC  

net neutrality is like over 90% support in the US but its still very contentious in congress

2017-11-06 18:10:28 UTC  

Again do you theten them with voting them out?

2017-11-06 18:10:31 UTC  

because the telecom corporations bought everyone out

2017-11-06 18:10:48 UTC  

and our system doesn't allow for a decent third party to rise

2017-11-06 18:10:48 UTC  

and replace them with who? the problem is we have a de facto oligarchy

2017-11-06 18:11:04 UTC  

The biggest problem with Congress is that they have no term limits

2017-11-06 18:11:05 UTC  

Oligarchy is always inevitable

2017-11-06 18:11:10 UTC  

this is why the mainstream media hates trump, he isn't one of them

2017-11-06 18:11:10 UTC  

Corps are people my friend

2017-11-06 18:11:33 UTC  

yes, but their goals are vastly different from the common man

2017-11-06 18:11:40 UTC  

trump is a reaction to democucks and rethuglicans being two sides of the same corrupt coin

2017-11-06 18:12:13 UTC  

trump is that snake in the grass you find at your workplace

2017-11-06 18:12:23 UTC  

nice to your face but will quite happily slag you off to others
