Default For those who still do not believe the government wants access to everything.

Lavabit was an encrypted email provider and recently the owner made the decision to shut it down. He is under a gag order so he cannot say to much but he implies the government came in and demanded access to all encrypted accounts. He also implies he made the decision to shut down the service was not authorized by the government, bu rather he just went ahead and shut it down to protect peoples privacy.

Come on now, we are not asleep. We are wide awake and know exactly how we are being F@#$%^ by the government, but we choose to continue on. Honestly unless we get a LARGE group of people marching on the capitals, then there is nothing that will come of anything we do. Look at all the people who have blown up gov. buildings and shot cops, judges, etc... and the gov. and the media just make them out to be terrorists.
