When will they wake up?

Not only is it frightening to think that the government can listen in on our phone calls and read our emails, now they're targeting journalist to whom whistle blowers intent on leaking illegal government activity may contact.

The Patriot Act vs. The First Amendment
She points out that in any given conflict between a law and the Constitution, the Constitution will win. But the question becomes how soon will the agrieved parties (the journalist and their organizations) bring suit? And how soon will the public at large wake up to the fact that the government of the people, for the people and by the people couldn't care less about the people? My fear is that the answer is "too late". At least for someone (or perhaps someones).
