Thoughts on wiretapping....

This seen on Unamerican.Com which is the source of some of those great bumper stickers out there.

They have this to say:

* During 1990s, 83% of phone taps were for "vice crimes"
* In 1996, 1.7 million persons phone tapped were found innocent, out of a total of 2.2 million
* Majority of surveillance is casual conversation from general public

Of course, wiretapping isn't new, nor is such pervasive wiretapping but the lack of warrent-based wire-tapping is clearly a problem and the degree of lying about it is even worse.

But what I want to know is


is everyone so suprised about it? Why would they assume this administration is not listening in on them? All this watch your neighbor, report suspicious people and activities stuff is just an expression of how they feel about the population at large.
