  • Civil liberties is what made us the envy of the world

    There is no doubt in my mind that without our civil liberties we will leave in tyranny. The level of trust in this country are an all time low and this is why many people are arming themselves. Our freedoms can not be taken away by a US police state.

  • Land of free

    We can not allow the land of the free to become a Gestapo state. Like someone else posted, this is the land of the free and we have to continue to be known as a country that trusts its people. We can not subject our citizens to unreasonable unfair searches.

  • Need a mix of the two

    In a day and age with so many people that mean so many other people harm, we have to be careful. However, a state of near martial law, where all your correspondence is seen by the government certainly doesn't seem like what the founding fathers have in mind when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

  • Civil liberties should always be the top rank.

    Civil liberties should always out way national security as it is the one thing that this country is based upon. America is to be the land of the free, not the land of the scrutinized, always watched, always monitored, always wondering who is spying on them. It is what our country use to be known for, trusting its own people.

  • Weak security brings terrorism

    When terrorists hack us and find our weakness, they come to us. Then the country freaks out and they don´t understand. Too much security may take away civil liberties. Somehow we must balance security and civil liberties. Terrorists will somehow hack us and have so much information on us. Go Security

  • National security must come before individual rights.

    There is a debate now about how the United States government has been doing things like wire-tapping and monitoring e-mails and the like. People are worried that this is infringing on their individual, civil rights. However, most of us have little, if nothing, to hide from the government, and should thus not be overly alarmed by the monitoring they are doing in order to try and keep our country safe. We all may need to sacrifice for the common good. Indeed, we have more personal data being mined from us by websites online, who do so in order to target advertising, etc., than we do from the government, and yet we never bat an eyelash at these invasions of our privacy, which do nothing to benefit us.
