No, he's not. He only exposed what many of us already took to be fact anyway. Fact is no one cares. Where's the outrage? The protests in the streets? The recall initiatives of politicians who support crap like this, the Patriot Act, et al. Where?
There is none. Social apathy, laziness and greed is now complete in the US. The elites realize they can do whatever the hell they want now and no one will lift a finger to stop them. In fact, they're only expanding their powers and grabbing more and it's all happening publicly now. And still no one bats an eye. If America ever was a democracy it sure as shit isn't now.
