We've all known that Big Tech uses our phones to spy on us for a long while, and we normally laugh it off.

I asked Kevin with PrivatePhoneShop.com t…

Self reliance is a key component of living a free life. If you're dependent on others you're not really free.

I know a lot of people eschew politics, and think we should completely opt out of the system.

I was thrilled t…
