    In the movie, Enemy of the State, the question is asked, “who is going to watch the watchers?” People like yourself are raising the alarm and providing the information, and it is the responsibility of every American who values freedom more than mere existence to do the watching. We will either make a break from the Nanny state, or become servants to the oligarchy.
