Senator Frank Church is an American hero we don’t hear much about. Decades before Edward Snowden, he warned us about the danger we would be in if our military surveillance apparatus were ever to be turned inward on us.
His greatest concern was our vulnerability. We would not be able to fight back if who we were and what we discuss is known.
In American history, unquestioning trust has never been given. It cannot be given today.
We must look for and support elected representatives who will support reversing this risk to the American people.
