Imagine what they will do if they get an Internet kill switch.
The Federal Bureaucracy is no different than the local government. You have a police department that seems to avoid the real crime at near all costs while whining about how dangerous it is out there. In the mean time instead of fighting real crime they surround the interstates with speed traps and put red light cams in the intersections and call that law enforcement. In the mean time the inner cities are pits of murder, drugs and vice crime and getting worse. you have idiots like Bloomberg running round over the country investigating other states and cities when the jackass controls a police department that is larger than 2/3 of the worlds armies. Yet, his crime problems are all about someone outside his state. Forget the idea that the largest crime families in the country are based in NYC and a number of NYC police get their second pay checks off the crime.
Now we have the Feds and their war on terror. We demean people at our airports. We have stripped Americans of their freedoms and happiness, We have limited travel and cash transactions. We allow the Feds to violate the constitution by issuing themselves wiretap warrants. They run around like a bunch of pansy asses seizing domains and calling P2P a terrorist threat. In the mean time we have pumped billions into the war on terror and the sonzabitches continue to put up these snow jobs while the guy who started it all, Bin Laden, is free as a bird and apparently forgotten by Uncle Sam. Well folks, it sure as hell isn’t the terrorists who are making life hell in this country. The whole concept of killing off our rights one by one was not dreamed up be some terrorist. it is our own government. Just who is the fucking enemy and who works for who anyway?

That is the question of the century. Politicians are mercenaries who work for the people who pay them the most, not the people who elected them. Unfortunately this situation is caused by the large payments made buy an entertainment industry desiring higher profits regardless of the costs or laws broken. Currently the law allows significant bribes (in the form of campaign contributions and ther benefits) to politicians, which should be no surprise. Politicians write and pass the laws. There are almost no politicians who are not corrupt because in order to rise to any level in politics you must be corrupt, otherwise, no corporate money and no party support in any way.
There only a couple of ways to put a stop to the craziness that is happening in the US, unfortunately the quick and easy fix means a lot of people have to dig deep and bribe politicians while boycotting the industries that seek to subvert the right of the people. However, when you buy someone they never stay bought and ultimately the constitution needs to be ammended to place more controls on out elected officials to force them to either be honest or loose everything and be jailed, and not in a countryclub prison. This situation is far worse than most people believe could happen in their worst nightmares.

Great Idea but can never happen! Politicians write and pass the laws. they are not going to pass a law that would put them in Jail.
