1. They--unlike the Nixon Administration--actually wielded the frightening powers of the IRS to suppress conservative 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) political groups.

I was working for a 3 letter intel agency in 2010...and they told us to get rid of our facebook accounts - that anything we did or said could cost us our clearance depending on what we posted or commented on...I deleted mine...and then the whole Snowden thing hit...I think the higher ups knew this program went on line and what it was capable of doing - and they didn’t want the intel personnel to get caught up in it... Presently - I’m in the middle of cyber and hacking training...one can clearly see where the new battlefield is going to be - and it ain’t going to be some sand box...well maybe a sandbox....but one without the actual sand...
