    The US government is now giving your tax dollars to the Mexican government so that government can improve its ability to tap telephone calls and emails.
    From the Los Angeles Times report:
    Mexico is expanding its ability to tap telephone calls and e-mail using money from the U.S. government, a move that underlines how the country’s conservative government is increasingly willing to cooperate with U.S. on law enforcement.
    The expansion comes as President Felipe Calderon is pushing to amend Mexico’s constitution to allow officials to tap phones without a judge’s approval in some cases.
    The fact that the US federal government continues to support countries that violate liberty should come as no surprise, considering similar such violations domestically too. Although such a program would obviously be considered repugnant by people who love liberty, simply opposing this measure alone only scratches the surface of the real problem.

    As the wise saying goes, “it’s not the abuse of power that we should be concerned with, but rather, the power to abuse.”
    So how does this apply to this situation?


    I've heard some folks say that Ron Paul would end foreign aid to Israel. :eek:

    And some even claim he is a "hypocrite" for his constitutional stance. So I ask those who claim this point blank. What part of unconstitutional do you not understand? And why do you enjoy paying other nation's elites and global corporations rewards and and dividends for stealing from their own people and fleecing you while your own land and countrymen suffer and go without because of it?

    Who's the real hypocrite Ron Paul or those who would gladly steal your property to keep "friendly dictators" in power over in places like Pakistan, Iraq and Iran? Yes Virginia,...Uncle Sam did steal your property to keep Saddam and the Shah of Iran in power as well as a whole list of others. How about those of you who encourage Uncle Sam to not only keep stealing your property and mine but to do it in ever increasing amounts while trying to convince us (Paul supporters) that what is unconstitutional (illegal) is a good and righteous thing indeed?

    Y'all speak up and stand by your convictions now don't be shy.
