Former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has called on the public to support Apple in its battle against the US government to create a “backdoor” into iPhones for the FBI to bypass encryption.The liberatarian-minded Republican slammed the need for the hack in a statement this week, saying, “The government spying on us has not prevented one terrorist attack.” Paul said that if Apple assists the FBI, it will be a “precedent-setting case” and the technology will be used again with a lower threshold: “We have a fundamental right to go about our daily life without the threat of government surveillance of our activities. We are not East Germany.” Words from the man who should of been our president in the first place. This is probably also one of the main reasons he never was. I'm very positive that Ron Paul is just as sketchy as most Americans when it comes to Apple and them handing over information to the feds. Very sure Ron knows about apple handing the feds information on 70 electronic devices from 2008-2015 by Apple to the feds. Lets not all forget that Apple has handed over info to the FBI, and have already been caught trespassing on our 4th amendment in the past.
