I really don't mind the inconvenience, if it's for the common good.
You are a fool if you think the safety you are getting comes anywhere close to the cost in rights and liberties you are given up.
The forefathers had great insight into the corruption and power hunger that feeds the governmental beast. Well beyond even they could imagine. Slowly, we the people are allowing them to remove all hurdles to absolute power all in the name of our safety.
Do you realize it is "One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country."? (quote attributed to Charlie Reese articles.orlandosentinel.com/201Â·Â·Â·con-game) Thats right, those 545 people are 100% responsible for every problem this country has had and will have and nothing will change until we make it.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it."
