    Here is a little of what we can expect from a Hillary Clinton administration

    Another article on the same subject in The Atlantic.

    When fascism comes to America, it won't be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. It will be wearing a pantsuit.

    I bet Trump can talk his buddy Bill Gates into helping Hillary with this.

    I think we're a about a decade too late on this surveillance state if we're going to be honest. A quick trip to Wikileaks is really all you need.

    Yeah, someone from the NSA should just tell Kazakhstan that their idea is, like, redundant.

    While it is true the NSA probably can break encryption where desired after much effort, the bulk snooping of something like PRISM did not. It seems doubtful Hillary or anyone else will be able to pass a similar law [requiring government backdoors] in the US. It seems like investigators will have to return to focused data collection.

    Politicians all over the world want to censor and monitor all communications on "the internet". Since the latest high visibility example was Donald Trump, and since the immediate article in question was about Kazakhstan, naturally you decided to talk about-- Hillary Clinton. At least it is a refreshing change from Barack Obama.
