9. Well, therein lies a problem - to which there are solutions

Oversight. We have three branches of government for this reason.

Trust. Back in the day we were worried most about foreign threats (Soviets, et al) and, outside of the red scare, it was us vs them type of thing. We trusted each other more than other countries.

Now we don't trust our own people to board a plane with a bottle of water or to even see loved ones off at the gate at an airport. WE have become the ones some want to track because 'they' don't trust 'us' - so why should we trust them?

Roll back the patriot act and such, then we can talk.
