Your ISP and NSA know you are sending your traffic to a TOR node. DUH..... How stupid are you compared to them?
Spending time on the internet is no indication of a crime so the government won't look at what I am sending in clear text by your argument.
Don't worry. The government can't break encryption and they won't monitor your traffic. (At least they won't tell you unless someone leaks it.)
You can not be that stupid the ISP and NSA do not know what is in that traffic or where that traffic will end up.
I know you think that the government have supernatural powers however some of the best mathematicians in the world had look at the encryption and declared that there is no likely/known means of breaking it short of a few billions years of using high speed computers on the project.
They only know it is going to the TOR network which is a reason to flag it and record it. It's rather easy to just save the packet and every other packet on a drive some where. It costs practically nothing for them to do so.

Last week’s disclosures about government surveillance of communications show how 12 years after 9/11, efforts to fight terrorism continue to raise questions about morality, legality and effectiveness. Is government surveillance a threat to our democracy?

Next as far as hardware keyloggers are concern knowing the weight of your computer down to the 1/1oo of an oz will detected any added hardware no matter how skillfully added
Of course. You WEIGH your computer every day
don't take any of those sorts of precautions Bill. They can read the lot for all I care.
What in hell do you have to hide, Bill? You keep state secrets on your machine or what?
What in hell do you have to hide, Bill?
I mean, if I discovered that someone had placed some sort of spy bug on my laptop, I would be very annoyed, of course, because I value my privacy and feel that no one has a right to do that. But that's all -- annoyed. I have no overwhelming reason to want to conceal anything that's on my hard drive nor to be overly concerned about anyone "listening" in on what I text. I've had various levels of govrnment clearances from time to time, but I sure wouldn't have any confidential info on my personal hardware. What's to hide?
You keep state secrets on your machine or what?
No I in fact weight it once in case when traveling back into the country someday it would ever be seized during a random search request for my not allowing custom to search through the hard drive.
For one thing beyond the principal of the matter my computers contain accounts information and passwords and such that control almost a million dollars of both my funds and other family members funds for example.
Is that enough of a reason to have top level security on my computers in your opinion?
