The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

America's S.S. is on the prowl

Fourth Amendment - Search and Seizure

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Good news everybody! The intelligence community, you know the guys that brought us sneak & peak and the Iraqi WMD intel, has figured out how to make America safe. All we have to do is...wait for know what's coming...GIVE THEM MORE POWER!!! That's right, the reason that we have had to suffer all of these debilitating terrorist attacks on American soil since 9.11, you know the car bombs, the planes full of chemical weapons, the exploding nuclear plants, is because the FBI and Justice Department just haven't had the tools to keep all those Muslim terrorists from slipping passed Bush's otherwise infallible border security. Gimme a break! Once more, the imagined terror threat, propagated by a willing media and a power mad political structure, is demanding that we bend over and grab our collective ankles so they can not only maintain the "Patriot Act", but expand it as well. You see, it would all be milk and honey in these United States if it wasn't for those pesky liberal judges with their "personal liberty" and their "Constitutional protections." So what's the answer to this scourge? Well take the judges out of the picture, of course. All that silly 4th amendment stuff is just getting in the way. I mean..sure, it was a great idea two hundred years ago but now we have George W. Bush. What can possibly go wrong? If you have a strong stomach, you can read more about the debate to re-authorize and expand the "Patriot Act" here.
