Cruz app data collection helps campaign read minds of voters |AP

Unbelievable! You have to read this.
Cruz app data collection helps campaign read minds of voters:

Big Brother is in your pocket or purse.
His "Cruz Crew" mobile app is designed to gather detailed information from its users' phones — tracking their physical movements and mining the names and contact information for friends who might want nothing to do with his campaign.
This is an evil use of technology. And he is not the only one using these tools, there are others.

Questions:
  • Is this ethical?
  • Where does the line get drawn? 
  • Who will ultimately see or get this data? 
  • What is the value of this data?
  • Will this data be sold for campaign funds? 
  • Where will this form of data collection ultimately lead to? 
  • Are out politicians profiling the american people?
    • When thinking about the above question consider potential outcomes.
  • Do you really believe that these people are protecting your privacy?   
We could go on with question after question. 

If there is anything funny in this it's that these politician's call each other untrustworthy.
