NSA collected more than 530 million call records last year. You can read about it here:
Did they prevent any terrorist attacks? None I can think of.
Did they prevent any school shootings? None I can think of.
Did they stop drug trafficking? Apparently not.
Did they stop human trafficking? Apparently not.
Did they prevent election interference? Apparently not.
And neither did the FBI.
Both agencies, however, apparently spied on We the People for political and economic reasons.
And this implies NSA and FBI work for the rich, for corporations, and for the US deep state.
Once again, We the People are paying for something that does not benefit us in any tangible way.
How gullible can we be?
