And this is how you know the Dem establishment is more cared about giving the Military Industrial Complex powers for mass surveillance of the American people to keep us under their thumb, than prevent a racist fascist from obtaining the untold powers of the surveillance state. These clowns will be responsible when the next Trump comes to office and puts his authoritarian boot on our necks, and suspends civil liberties. Luckily trump is too lazy and incompetent, but the next one won’t be.
