    Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) gives another great speech on the Senate floor last Friday as they debated the USA Freedom Act, a bill that would have effectively shut down the federal government's bulk collection of phone records.

    “The question is not whether we protect the American people, but whether we do it in a way that is constitutional and protects the constitutional rights of our people.”

    You have your ISP, Google, and other large corps gathering data on you. Even if they abolished it tomorrow it would not stop. There is no way to put the genie back in the bottle.

    your phone tracks you without an app. long before smartphones, cellphones have always known where you are and they always send that info back to your ISP. the range of cell towers is limited so that they are about as accurate as civilian GPS in targeting your movements.

    He's pretty good on many issues. Unfortunately, all the privacy in the world doesn't matter if you don't have economic freedom. He's definitely against that.

    im more worried about google than gov't , call on ur android phone and mention a product you would never buy (thus never have googled) in my case i chose 'fountain pen' i called my wife and just repeated the word 'fountain pen' and 'amazon.com' over and over. about 6 hrs later i signed in to amazon and fountain pens were in my recommended products.

    They got their panties in a wad and try to block leaks of who is cooperating with the Government and turning over data. Among the list were

    Verizon
    ATT
    Yahoo

    and others.
