Jeb Bush Announces He Is Against Encryption for Individuals

Presidential candidate Jeb Bush has called on tech companies to form a more “cooperative” arrangement with intelligence agencies. During a speech in South Carolina, Bush made clear his opinion on encryption: “If you create encryption, it makes it harder for the American government to do its job — while protecting civil liberties — to make sure that evildoers aren’t in our midst.” He also indicated he felt the recent scaling back of the Patriot Act went too far. Bush says he hasn’t seen any indication the bulk collection of phone metadata violated anyone’s civil liberties.

  1. As a proud American and ancestor of the founding families of the United States of America, (i.e..”Arnold, Westcott and Williams”). I find it very hard of support those who feel that individuals have no rights to personal privacy. I know that this site is not for politics, but come on Americans educate your selves and be supportive of rights and not the wealthy fat cats who only focus is to sell you out. I lived under then Governor “Jeb” he drove the great state of Florida into a death swirl of high steak testing for students of which he and his family owned large amounts of stock in the company that provided the test to the K-12 students. The out come is the fact educator could no longer educate just prep of a test. As for services for states needy they are now few and far between now. He in fact drove industry out of the state to off shore countries.

    He not a great leader as he states,but a suppressor of individuals and there freedoms of great livelihood.
    Not do not support him nor is family.
