Surveillance and Near Future US Politics

Recommended Posts

Given the lid has been blown off of Project PRISM by Snowden, it strikes me that American politicians on the federal level who actively camapign against government surveillance may gain traction with the voters, if not the two main parties' establishments, as many Americans seem to feel betrayed by their government on this. In fact, it might even be worth considering it as an issue in a future update of the 2016 scenario.

That's why I'm not so keen on the 2016 scenario; a lot could happen in the meantime and half of the candidates might not even be interested or have enough of a chance to bother. The polling could also change a fair bit as well as followers of Irish or British politics would know very well.

I found this old thread, and boy was that wrong a lot of people have no issue with mass Government surveilance and some even favor the repeal of the 4th amendment.
