The backlash of the tech companies has been intensified by the disclosure of classified documents that have led to a crisis of trust among the American people toward their government. The straw that broke the camel's back was the disclosure over the weekend that government agencies can spy on citizens through their webcams, which are located on all computers sold today. The agencies can turn on the webcams remotely without the user being aware they are being watched. One report stated that this can be done even when the computer is turned off.
Further, many Americans were alarmed when it was reported over the weekend that the IRS and the SEC want the authority to snoop through the emails of any citizen, any time they wish, and without a properly executed warrant.
The alarm that increasing numbers of citizens express concerning these growing signs of government domination and tyranny are only exacerbated by the knowledge that a huge, growing government monolith is operating behind the scenes, apart from the Constitutional provisions of the three branches of government -- the legislative (Congress), the executive (president), and the judicial (the Supreme Court).
