Have Republicans already opted to sell us out to illegal immigrants? Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte hopped on board the immigration train for the press last Sunday morning.

Sooner or later, Republicans will agree to help Democrats screw us on immigration.
Has the government spied on you? Possibly. Has your right to privacy ever been violated? Most likely. Is government surveillance something you should worry about? If you are not a terrorist, haven’t committed a crime, and haven’t been hauled away in a big black van yet, probably not.
