Coup d'Etat

Rush Limbaugh reflects on the latest revelations about the government's data grab, including data gleaned from everyday communications by average citizens like you and me:
It made me once again understand, folks, what you and I are up against here. There are just way too many people -- and I'm talking about on our side -- who do not want to admit what we face, who do not want to engage or admit or whatever what we really face here. It matters. This kind of stuff matters because of who the people doing it happen to be.
Limbaugh continues:
Herbert Meyer, if I may quote him again, asserted that essentially what's taking place in the United States right now is a coup, not a violent coup, and not a million artistic coup, but nevertheless a takeover of a government, and it's being done by the Obama administration.
It does amaze me how so many people are just coming to this realization. And how many more remain in denial.  Obama told us his goal before he was elected in 2008.  He told us he would fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Obama also said he'd use a giant Homeland Security apparatus to meet and protect his national security objectives, though he never did make clear what those objectives would be. We now know they include scooping up every type of digital record created by folks like you and me.
