The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says the electronic surveillance program foiled "dozens" of terrorist plots.
Free Spirit: Wake up America before it's too late. Your country is in a death spiral and it would appear that there is no one with the courage and intelligence required to prevent an impending disaster willing to come forward to lead you out of the almighty mess you have gotten yourselves into. At such a critical point in world history the expectation is for sophisticated debate on key domestic and international issues not gutter rhetoric. For so many years you have held your system of government up as one that should be aspired to by other nations. Sadly this election campaign has revealed for all to see, just how bankrupt and corrupt your system really is. Where is your knight in shining armour in your hour of greatest need????? The influence of vested interests must be removed from the electoral system and a return to a more truly representative system of government effected or all will be lost. Your labour force, the life blood of your country has been betrayed by a wealthy elite. This system of government will falter if it continues in the present direction.
