With that view of the government its no wonder you are afraid of
transparency. You seem to believe that the US is little more than a thinly
disguised full-blown Orwellian dystopia. Perhaps it really is, and perhaps
I'm just naive. But if I thought for one minute that your view of the
country that I live in was anything close to reality, I'd be on the first
boat to Sweden.
