quote: Why can we not have a safe society while also preserving the precious liberties our forefathers granted to us with their lives? Look at Israel. It's a relatively democratic state in the midst of a very hostile, autocratic region, with enemies camped out along its national borders. Its citizens enjoy great freedom, yet at the same time they are highly protected from danger.
quote: Now look at America. We gave up a lot of our liberties, yet the country is increasingly more dangerous, not safer, ever since the Twin Towers fell. Best of all, we have a government whose various departments, agencies and repressive regimes are actively plotting against us, under the disguise of "national security".
quote: You're a worthless pro-government shill. You tell us to shut our mouths, because you clearly believe your own backstabbing government can never ever do any wrong. Yep, you have gone full speed delusional retardation.
quote: What country are you comparing the US to? We actually have much more freedom than almost all 1st world countries and amongst the safest also.
