    I was wondering where the hell Sanford was on this thing.

    I wonder why Sanford wasn't one of the reps who signed Amash's letter on this issue if he's opposed to this program.

    U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford's reaction was almost exactly the opposite. He said the data mining is “out of control” and has “no regard for constitutional rights.”

    “I think that they've crossed a tripwire,” Sanford said. “As a conservative, it's more than alarming. And frankly, it's very disturbing.”
    When Sanford appeared before Dorchester County Republicans during a Saturday breakfast meeting, he heard similar concerns.

    “Rightfully, they were really, really upset. I think if you're a conservative, you ought to be very, very upset, maddened, frustrated. I think if you're a liberal, you ought to be very maddened, frustrated and upset,” he said. “Wherever you are on the social scale in terms of political philosophy, this whole notion of Big Brother just sort of mining through personal records is flabbergasting from a social standpoint. It's disturbing from a political standpoint.”

    ^ A little disconnect in those polls.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
    --Albert J. Nock

    Obvious headline is obvious. Now, if the headline read Sanford and Graham AGREE on data mining... THAT would be be newsworthy.
