The best way I can describe my feelings about the “enhanced security measures at airports” is to simply quote one of America’s founding fathers. Perhaps you know this one:
“Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.”
As one of my best friends once said: “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention”.
What’s next to keep us secure I ask? Checkpoints on the streets? Carry your papers with you at all times? Travel by government permission only? Police entering your house without a warrant “looking for potential terrorists”?
Come on people, wake up and smell the roses!!! Use the power you have: VOTE! Write your congressman! Demonstrate on the streets! This is wrong!!!
Or would you rather roll over and simply tell your children that nobody can touch them there except the government?
The choice, for the moment, is ours.
