Big Brother was watching, but we didn't know

June 26, 2013 12:00 am

I, and millions of people like me, have been reading and listening on the news about what a bad thing or almost a crime our president has committed by taping conversations by millions of good Americans, but then I start reasoning with myself why the Big Brother is doing this to its own people.

The more I think about the benefit the more convinced I become. On one hand we want to be safe and secure, and on the other hand we don't want to compromise.

Unfortunately, the world we are living in is different than the one our fathers and grandfathers lived in. Lots of us agreed one wrong doesn't make a right, but if one wrong makes our nation secure, then I will vote for the wrong.

If I am not doing anything wrong, I don't need to worry about who is listening me. But that's me. You have to make your own decision.
