FBI Broke the law for years

The Washington Post today reports that the FBI collected more than 2000 telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 illegally.  Yet again, it is shown that the government can not be trusted to follow its own laws and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  When will the people learn that the Founders knew what they are talking about?  They knew the only way to preserver liberty was to limit the powers of government.
