Enough is enough with Obama’s tyrannical control over each American child, woman, elderly and especially the conservative opponents of the Obama regime that are spied every minute of every day of every year by Obama and the NSA who trash the US constitution that they hate and despise. The eight large corporations led by Google, Yahoo and Facebook realized that the American people as well as other people around the world are scared to express their ideas because Obama may use his liberal zealous henchmen of the IRS and NSA to oppress them and their bank accounts which is typical Stalinist Communistic regime that uses the KGB to remove any opposition to Obama in the elections of 2012, and now 2014 and 2016. Ted Cruz realized that every word that he utters and mentioning his donors can cost them their liberty and freedom by the Obama regime that is supported by John McCain, Peter King and other RINOs that undermine the GOP party and support Obama. How long will the American people live like slaves in communistic North Korea with oppressive regime of Obama who keeps lying to them day in and day out.

ALL Of This snooping crap is illegal by the 4th Amendment of the Constitution. It's no wonder that they love to float the story that the Constitution is out dated. That story doesn't work anymore so the new tact is to just ignore it. This must be Stopped and the files destroyed!
My president was elected by dead people!

These tech companies' are just trying to save face. They have enabled the gov to do many of things things with little to no fight. In some cases such at Level 3, its the US gov who is keeping the company afloat so they can tap into the backbone of the internet here in the states.

These companies' are starting to lose international $$ so again, this is them trying to save face. Simply a PR move.
