If you are a voter in the US, please consider signing this.

If you aren't, don't be too smug. Pretty much all other countries have less controls on their spooks compared to the US; some countries might be less competent at implementing a panopticon, but GHCQ (for example) has admitted that they can put any British subject under surveillance if they feel like it, without needing to suspect that the person has committed a crime, and without asking a judge first.
