I know I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but:
Honestly, from a personal standpoint, I could care less if this passes. If it allows them greater access to info that could keep us safe, then that's great. I have absolutely nothing to hide from the government, so if they want to read my facebook or intercept my texts, I'm ok with it. Chances are, they are able to tap in to this stuff already, they just want to make it legal to do so.
