You may have heard this weekend folks will be taking to the streets of Washington to demand an end to what many believe has become a surveillance state in light of the NSA’s programs revealed this past summer.

And when it comes to Americans’ mistrust of government, it’s easy to conjure up images of President Nixon and Watergate. Well, in some ways it’s like 1974 all over again. Fears about government spying are back in the U.S. and as strong as ever.
