How can you prevent the government or authorities from spying on your computer ?

I'm in the US and I'm being told that our computers are being watched. How can you prevent them from spying on your computer if that is really happening ?

    they track everything you do, but they cannot use it without a warrant, and they can't get that without proving you did something wrong.

    as long as you aren't doing anything illegal, they have no reason to go after you.

    and if you ARE doing something illegal, then shame on you! you SHOULD get arrested for that!

    There is no way. The government has millions of dollars to develop their techniques.

    Disconnect completely from the internet.

    They can watch you by your Internet traffic, not actually looking at your machine. By using the Internet, all bets are off, they can watch everything you do online.
