You trust the state and politicians way too much to be considered a libertarian or conservative. You're very naive. Including about marketers.

I mean why do you think all those contests are being used by companies? To get your email to market to you. More data in a profile is always a plus. That's how Obama's campaign used it, to more easily target certain groups with certain promotions.

Makes total sense and highly probable.
You're talking about a pretty big conspiracy that includes Federal judges on the FISA court and professionals at the NSA who have no particular interest in getting Obama re-elected. It's not like David Axelrod can just call up the NSA database on his macbook pro and run a query from his office. It's super improbable. It's two ticks shy of impossible.
