When Faisal Shahzad tried to blow up Times Square Eric Holder demanded we make our “Miranda” rights “more flexible to meet our current security needs,” a call for the destruction of our 5th & 6th Amendments. And Americans cheered the government’s assault on the Constitution, a.k.a. the fight against terrorism.
The government then moved on to mass SECRET surveillance of US Citizens through the FBI and partnerships between DHS and our local law enforcement in statewide “Fusion Centers”. Don’t worry, not ALL citizens, just those the DHS has classified as “anti-government.”
CISPA may not pass the Senate and become law, but that is NO IMPEDIMENT to a tyrant. Obama has authorized the DHS to secretly grab your internet communications and monitor YOU!
Yet, our government does not stop with secret surveillance, but BOLDLY and OPENLY tramples our rights, because Americans clamor for it to obtain safety. All the while the warnings of our founders fall on deaf ears. Sam Adams: Let us remember that “if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.”
