Smart TV Companies spying on us is despicable

Whatever happened to the freedom that we had?
Oh wait from Birth Certificates to Driver’s Licenses
we have been conned to sacrifice our privacy
or worse give up our rights to the Elite.
I have seriously had it to high heaven with them.
I seriously am considering starting a petition to secede
the entire U.S. from the Union
and maybe another to create a People Government,
not Secret Government that rules to control us not protect us.
