Is homeland security more important than civil liberties?

  • For the sake of the safety of our nationals, I would say that homeland security outweighs civil liberties.

    I am not proposing that all civil liberties should be removed, but some should be restrained for the sake of national security. Because what's the point if you have all the liberties and freedoms of this world when you don't have security for yourself and your family. For instance at the Airport, where your privacy may be invaded like too much security procedures that really annoy you, but you should understand that certain freedom must be sacrificed for the safety of everyone. After all, the life of the people on board is more important than that privacy.

  • Yes is is

    What if the 9/11 terrorists had been thwarted at the security checkpoint? We would have been spared not only the worst terrorist attack in American history, But probably two wars that have gone on for nearly a decade. Some people say it is so uncomfortable to do this, Can't they get rid of it? But to some citizens, This is the only sacrifice they are making. They are not fighting on the front lines against terrorists to keep us safe, So the lease you can do is be a nice guy when going through security. People who don’t like airport security say it is unnecessary and terrorists have moved past airports, But last week, A fake bomb was delivered to a plane bound for Munich with nearly 300 passengers, In what may have been a trial run in a program to blow up planes.

  • Our security is more important than our comfort.

  • I believe that security is more important than our civil liberties.

    Think about this, What if 9/11 was stopped in the airport, And they couldn't hijack the planes. We would not only be spared the worst terrorist attack in U. S. History, But it would prevent us from starting two wars. Some of our citizens are putting on a huge show just because they get a little uncomfortable going through security at the airport, But to most citizens this is the only sacrifice you are making. You're not fighting on the front lines against terrorists. People are dying to protect us from terrorists. The least you can give them is being kind and nice during airport security.

  • Yes it does

    The preamble of the constitution states says that in order to from a more perfect union it will "insure domestic tranquility" and "provide for the common defense" so homeland security is providing the exactly one of the basis that's written in our constitution. In the court case Schneck vs the united states the supreme court came to the decision that if someone's liberties will bring danger to others especially in a time of war then civil liberties may be limited. America is technically , currently at war with terrorism. President Bush declared war on terrorism after 9/11. And by not providing information that can help track terrorists or soil their next terrorist attack you are putting Americans in danger of being in their line of fire if they are not caught.

  • God Bless the U.S.

    Without security, our freedoms and rights would be taken from us by outside forces. The Patriots Act and N.S.A. Were designed to aid the fight against terrorism. Counter terrorism is one of the most essential branches of security that we need. Events like 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombings are perfect examples of terrorism right at our doorsteps when we least expected it. It seems that our country suffers from National Amnesia and that we forget the past events and how they've forever changed history. As soon as we cut spending for defense, military, and limit laws we can pass for our security, we expose ourselves and make ourselves vulnerable to attacks. For example, after the Cold War our government voted to reduce spending for military expenses and as a result we were left with four fighter jets to defend the entire East Coast during the time period 9/11 occurred. Open a history textbook and more than likely one will find an instance where a country repealed laws or reduced military spending and they were attacked or invaded when the opportunity revealed itself. No one is taking away or God given rights or our basic liberties, but yes we do have to give up a few unnecessary rights for security. But its easy to say that safety in a country where we still posses the essential rights is better than a country where we can do as we please, have no means of protection or security. A third of Americans do not even know what the N.S.A. Or the Patriots Act even do. Do not forget that we have been attacked and we will be again if we do not take the appropriate action.

  • Homeland security is anything but that

    The fascist totalitarian u.S regime is a total violation of civil liberties. Civil liberties have been under threat in the u.S since the very begining, but it has gotten considerably worse in the past 30 years. The prison population has doubled, and the power of police and authorities have increased.

    Its an invasion of privacy and police didnt need warrants to search property making us vulnerable to having our privacy breached. All the fighting tactics the US did were killing civilians as well and its cruel towards innocents and their families. Its not ok for this
